I am married to Wilfredo Crespo, and we live in Cleveland. We love each other, our marriage, and Marriage Encounter. We are proud to join with millions of people who work and pray to promote and support marriage. Yay!
This is a group for married couples who desire a richer, fuller life together. The emphasis of Marriage Encounter is on communication between husband and wife, who spend a weekend together away from the distractions and the tensions of everyday life, to concentrate on each other. This is a time for you and your spouse to be alone together, to rediscover each other and together focus on your relationship for an entire weekend. The weekend is Catholic in orientation and is expressed in the tradition and understanding of the Catholic Church. It is open to all, and so a number of spaces are reserved each weekend for couples of other faiths. After experiencing the encounter, couples can share in group activities with other encountered married couples such as monthly social meetings, group picnics, annual group conferences, etc. Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a global organization with chapters all over Ohio, the United States and the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and other parts of the world. Come join us for a deeper, richer, fuller, happier marriage relationship.
