Worldwide 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.

This program is offered twice a year in English and three times a year in Spanish in Arkansas. It is just one of the many programs sponsored by the Family Life Office to honor and strengthen marriage in the Diocese of Little Rock.
