YES, both you and your fiance must be present for the entire weekend and all presentations, prayer services and liturgies in order to earn your certificate which will be provided at the conclusion of the weekend. There will be no exceptions made.
The weekends are held at Holy Trinity Spiritual Center in Pikesville MD. We also hold an occasional in-parish weekend throughout the year.
It is for all couples contemplating marriage. The Engaged Encounter Weekend has the support and approval of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
Six to twelve months before the wedding would be an ideal time frame. A minimum of three months before the weekend is recommended. Often, weekends book up to six months in advance.
A team of two married couples and the priest facilitate and guide the Weekend. Team presentations involve personal sharing on marriage and family issues. The team encourages the couples to become involved in a period of discovery. It is a working weekend, not a vacation.
