Catholic Engaged Encounter is a weekend retreat for engaged couples with plenty of time for each couple to dialogue honestly and intensively about their prospective lives together - their strengths and weaknesses, desires, ambitions, goals, their attitudes about money, sex, children, family, and their role in the church and society -- in a face to face way. The weekend is open to any engaged couple wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together in a marriage recognized by the Catholic Church according to Church law.

Most Engaged Encounter Weekends will be held at the Loyola House of Retreats in Morristown, NJ, which has 30 acres of beautiful lawns, gardens and woodland in a quiet area.  All overnight weekends begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. Friday evening with registration and end by 4:00 p.m. Sunday. Mass is celebrated Saturday or Sunday.  The cost of the entire weekend is $425.00 per couple, which includes materials, meals and individual overnight accommodations. Click on dates to register.

Some Engaged Encounter Weekends may be held at the St. Magdalen de Pazzi Spirituality Formation Center in Flemington.  Please note this is NOT an overnight retreat, but instead a two-day full day retreat.  The cost for the retreat held at St. Magdalen is $225 per couple, which includes all meals and meeting materials.

Though we welcome every couple to Marriage Preparation programs, we need to give preference to the couples of our own Diocese.

We request that couples from outside the Diocese of Metuchen wishing to register for any of these sessions contact this Office before registering online. Please call us at (732) 243-4582 or email us at amatos@diometuchen.org
