Journey to Matrimony is based on the belief that successful marriages thrive on a strong, Christian foundation. This couple-based experience is intended for those entering into marriage for the first time and wish to deepen and enrich their relationship and desire a richer, fuller life together. Various presentation styles are used which may include a marriage & family therapist, married couple witness talks and DVD’s. Although Catholic in nature, couples of other faiths are welcome to attend.

Couples preparing for marriage at Incarnation are required to attend one of these overnight retreats at least 3 to 6 months prior to their wedding. We are certain that you will find it a very rewarding and enriching experience.  Dates, and registration information may be found below.
