The word "Retrouvaille" (pronounced re-tro-vi with a long i) means "rediscovery". The program helps couples rediscover a loving relationship in the midst of despair. Retrouvaille is a confidential weekend program along with follow up weekends that helps couples learn to better appreciate and communicate with one another. Couples who have experienced disillusionment, pain, anger, and conflict, facilitate the weekend and offer hope so that you both will find courage and strength in that you are not alone in your struggle.

Beloved: Finding Happiness in Marriage

A simple way to enrich your marriage from the comfort of your home

So you’ve shared an anniversary or two… or twenty… and you’ve learned a lot about yourselves and each other so far. But what if marriage is more than you think it is? What if God has woven into the very fabric of your humanity a purposeful need and desire that can only be fulfilled in your marriage?

Introducing BELOVED—the newest release of the acclaimed Symbolon series. In 12 stunning sessions, BELOVED uncovers the mystery and the meaning of the sacrament of marriage, inviting all couples to experience firsthand the wonder, mystery, and joy behind that first “I do”... whether you said it last year or many years ago.

The Diocese of Winona Media Center has BELOVED available for loan.  Click here to have BELOVED sent directly to you!
