Marriage Encounter, sponsored by Mennonite and Brethren Marriage Encounter, is an invitation to come away from the world, to spend an entire weekend focusing on your relationship with each other, working toward God’s ideal for marriage. Marriage Encounter takes couples beyond the frustration, disappointments, or loneliness that can be a part of a couple’s everyday life. Couples from all walks of life, newly married to golden anniversaries, have been part of a weekend.

Couples of all faiths and religious backgrounds, including those not currently attending worship services, are welcome.

The next Marriage Encounter will be on November 17-19, 2017 at the beautiful Monastery of Mount Carmel Spiritual Centre in Niagara Falls. Deadline for registration is November 7.
