Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend set

Worldwide Marriage Encounter has a dozen openings available for its Valentine’s Day weekend experience for married couples and priests at the Maui Beach Hotel.

The weekend begins the night of Feb. 14 and runs through the afternoon of Feb. 16. The experience is led by three trained presenting couples and a Catholic priest. Mass will be celebrated Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. There is a $100 application fee, but no couple is turned away for lacking the full amount.

Lee Barberos, one of the weekend’s presenters, said that couples are often looking for ways to enrich their marriages.

“The weekend helps couples sharpen their communication skills and provides uninterrupted time for couples to rekindle their love for one another,” he said. “It is a chance for them to look deeply into their relationship with each other and with God.”

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is the original faith-based marriage enrichment program. The weekend is a positive and personal experience offering married couples and opportunity to learn a technique of loving communication that they can use for the rest of their lives.
