Engaged Couples Retreat
What is It?
- A day to forget about hectic wedding plans and concentrate on marriage plans.
- An opportunity to be with married couples, reflect together as a couple and talk with other engaged couples about the sacrament of marriage.
What to Expect Before the Retreat
- To gain insights and better appreciation of self and intended partner.
- To better understand what the covenant of sacramental marriage means.
- This is one option of marriage preparation offered by the Diocese of Nashville; the couples must still meet with the Priest or Deacon in their parish.

- Also included are 2 Myers-Briggs Type Inventory Forms (to be filled out at home and brought to the retreat) and directions to the retreat.
- Welcome Call: this call comes from a team member about 1 week before the retreat to welcome the couple to the retreat.
