In Support of Marriage and Family Life - Resources
Couples For Christ
This is a religious movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. It is a community of Christian couples who have committed themselves to the Lord and to one another, so that they may grow into maturity as men and women of God. To fulfill their primary vocation of raising up their families under the lordship of Jesus Christ and for the service of the Kingdom of God. It is a work of Christ which raises up Christian couples and establishes Christian families committed to the work of evangelization and winning the world for Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. It grows mainly through the establishment of localized units in different parishes, website.
Catholic Engaged Encounter (CEE) is an intensive weekend of preparation, in which each couple is offered the time and opportunity to question, examine, and deepen their relationship, share in community and be open to God's plan. Topics covered during the weekend include; self-awareness, values and ideals, communication, decision making, intimacy in marriage, Natural Family Planning, prayer and unity. Couples are given opportunities to learn more about one another as they engage in deep and meaningful discussions between themselves, dealing with all aspects of married life. A weekend stay is necessary to keep the atmosphere generated by the Encounter - away from the distractions of everyday lives.
