Marriage Formation Retreat

The Three to Get Married marriage formation retreat weekends are an opportunity for couples to learn how to put Christ at the center of the marriages as they prepare for the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony. Mentor couples are invited and encouraged to attend with their engaged couples when possible.

The retreat will cover important formation topics such as Communication and Family of Origin, but will also spend time with the treasures of our Catholic faith, such as the importance of prayer, the sacraments, Confession, and the Holy Eucharist. This is an important part of the marriage formation process, and we are looking forward to having you with us!

2020 Retreat Schedule Update

 The online retreats were developed in response to COVID-19 and the cancellation of live events. For the remainder of the year a majority of the Three to Get Married retreats will be held online, with one live retreat scheduled for October (see information below).  We have posted the remaining weekends for 2020, and are currently working on the 2021 retreat weekend schedule. We will begin posting the 2021 retreat schedule (both live and online weekends) on November 1, 2020. If you have questions regarding the retreat schedule, please contact Deanna Johnston, the Director of Family Life at djohnston@stphilipinstitute.org or (903) 630-5055 Ext 112.
