Marriage Enrichment

The John Paul II Centre supports married couples and parents on their journey to bring their spouse and their family closer to heaven.

Marriage Unplugged

We will attend courses to improve our work skills or to improve our golf game.  We will get our cars serviced to prevent car trouble.

But how often do we work to improve our marriages or to prevent marital-breakdown?

Marriage Unplugged is a workshop designed to enrich and refresh your marriage. This is for all couples – regardless of the stage of your marriage.

We cover the seasons of marriage, communication and conflict, ideas to rejuvenate your marriage, priorities, love languages, and the spiritual dimension of marriage.

You will be surprised how easy it is to restore the X-factor into your marriage.

The format is brief talks followed by you as a couple privately sharing between yourselves.  

Do not fear – there is no group sharing!
