If Engaged Encounter is to continue to grow, we need your help. There are many ways to do this. For example, you could simply spread the word about Engaged Encounter to family, friends, and even your parish priest.
Here are some more ideas …
Ask the priest that is witnessing your wedding if he has ever made an Engaged Encounter weekend. Having a priest as a part of our presenting team offers a unique perspective in all of the presentations, liturgies, and the Saturday Evening Discussion.
You might also consider being a Prayer Couple. This requires little time commitment. You just need to pray for an engaged couple over the course of the weekend. This prayer support may be just the lift that some future engaged couple needs to be open and honest with each other.
Some couples like to volunteer to be a host couple on Friday evenings, helping couples (who are often very nervous about what to expect) carry their luggage and get settled in. This only requires a few hours on a Friday evening and can be scheduled well in advance.
You might consider becoming a presenting couple and sharing the experiences you have had with engaged couples in the hope that it will strengthen their relationship. Of course, we would not expect you to participate in any of these activities between now and your wedding unless you choose to do so.
Engaged Encounter is an entirely volunteer organization- from the couples who carry your bags, to the presenting teams, even the couples who go around the world forming new communities.
