Married couples are invited to attend the next Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend Sept. 25-27 at Coury House Retreat Center on the grounds of Subiaco Abbey.

Marriage Encounter allows married couples to spend time together, away from the distractions and tensions of everyday life, where they can focus on each other and their relationship. Couples learn a technique of loving communication that they can use for the rest of their lives. It's not a retreat, marriage clinic, group sensitivity or a substitute for counseling. It's a unique approach aimed at revitalizing marriage. The first 20 applicants for Worldwide Marriage Encounter will get a 25-percent discount off the $100 application fee through Aug. 31. More
