What Happens on an EE Weekend?
An atmosphere is created for the two of you to concentrate exclusively on each other, free of the distractions, pressures and interruptions of daily living a "time out" away from home, friends, and wedding preparations. It is a quiet weekend, specifically designed to give you the opportunity to talk honestly with your finance about your future together an opportunity to discover a deeper appreciation of your relationship and God's call to unite in a permanent union through the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony.

The weekend consists of a series of presentations beginning Friday evening and ending Sunday afternoon. Led by two married couples and a Priest.   You will be encouraged to talk privately with each other on many aspects of marriage, from the viewpoint of your own relationship.

Among the subjects you will have an opportunity to discuss with each other are your ambitions, goals, attitudes about relationship, God, sex, money, children, family, and your role in the church and community. Personal reflection and couple discussion are the main focus of our weekend, group interraction is limited. Since each relationship is in a different place, your private answers will be unique and special to your relationship.

Through personal sharings, the presenting teams will talk about what the sacrament of matrimony means to them individually and the impact that a great marriage can have on the world.  Our stories are meant to encourage you to explore your own attitudes and expectations. We will offer some ideas and tools to help the two of you to continue growing closer in your relationship as you mature through the years.  We will not tell you how to live your life. 

Why Should We Go on A Weekend?
Our motto is, "A Wedding is a Day, a Marriage is a Lifetime."  Your wedding will be a single day in your life together, but your marriage union should last a lifetime. Think of the many months and hours you are spending preparating for your wedding day. But how much time and effort do we spend preparing for what we hope will last 50 or 60 years our marriage?

Ask yourself, "Am I willing to spend 44 hours devoted to hearing ideas and learning skills that will help to make my marriage and my relationship the best that it can be?"
