Welcome to the Three to Get Married Retreat information page!

The St. Philip Institute is proud to offer the Three to Get Married marriage formation retreat weekends. Designed by our Family Life office, these retreats 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 from the Witness to Love program are invited and encouraged to attend with their engaged couples when possible.

The retreat covers important topics such as communication and family of origin, and the couples who attend will spend time with the treasures of our Catholic faith, such as praying together, celebrating the sacraments of Confession, and the Holy Eucharist.

This is an important part of the marriage formation process, and we look forward to working with new couples!

See below for schedule.

2022 Retreat Schedule

Retreats are offered in-person. We will continue to offer these weekends following the necessary safety protocols. Registration for these events is limited, and the registration for the weekend will close as soon as the event capacity has been reached or on the registration deadline (whichever comes first). We encourage you to register for a retreat as soon as you know that the date will work for your schedule. If you have questions about the retreats, please contact Deanna Johnston. We look forward to seeing you!
