Are you looking to enrich, to reenergize or to heal your marriage?
The Service of Marriage, Family and Life at the Archdiocese of St. Boniface invites you to participate in an outstanding guided retreat for Christian couples!
Couples will be invited to deepen their connection and create a more secure love relationship, by exploring 7 conversations for lasting love. The retreat is based on the life-giving and highly effective method for helping couples: Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Location: The retreat will be hosted at the beautiful St. Benedict’s Retreat Centre, which is located in West Saint Paul (just a few minutes outside of Winnipeg).
This includes the cost of the retreat, as well as lunch and snacks. Please note, that this does not include the cost of accommodations (see below).
We encourage you to consider making it a weekend away!
