Diocesan Marriage Renewal

The Diocese of St. Augustine Marriage Renewal Program is designed to give married couples the opportunity to renew and revitalize marriages. It’s not a retreat, nor a marriage clinic, nor group sensitivity. It’s a unique approach aimed at revitalizing Christian Marriage. This is a time for you and your spouse to be alone together. This is a time to rediscover each other and together focus on your relationship for an entire weekend. Every marriage deserves that kind of attention!

Marriage Renewal weekends are held at the Marywood Retreat Center in Switzerland, FL. For more information or to register for a weekend, please contact Jerry and Ann Webster at (904) 268-3758 or email annewebster011564@hotmail.com.

Retrouvaille

The word Retrouvaille means “rediscovery” and is a program that offers you the chance to rediscover yourself, your spouse, and a loving relationship in your marriage.  This program is for couples with marital problems that want marriage help. Those who are considering marriage separation and those who are already separated or divorced are encouraged to consider the Retrouvaille Program. There is always hope of reviving your relationship.

Some couples come to Retrouvaille during the initial signs of a marriage problem. Other couples are in a state of despair and hopelessness when they attend the program.

Many lawyers and judges send couples to Retrouvaille as a prerequisite to filing for a divorce or rendering final decisions. Many marriage counselors and family therapists send their clients to Retrouvaille as a prerequisite to counseling. These professionals know that the tools of communication in marriage taught in the program are often what couples need.

The Retrouvaille program is for husbands and wives and is not designed nor intended for couples in a co-habitating relationship.

For further information or to register by phone, please contact Brian and Kathy Szabo at (904) 662-8604.
