A lifeline for married couples

Our Program

Weekend

Although the initial weekend is held in a hotel or retreat facility, the program is not to be confused with a retreat. This weekend is hard work and couples can find solace in knowing they are not alone. This portion of the program is presented by three couples and a priest or minister team. Each of the presenting teams have experienced pain. conflict, and disillusionment and offer hope as they share similar struggles you may be experiencing.

Post Sessions

The next phase of the program is called post sessions. The sessions are critical to the growth and healing of your broken marriage. These six sessions (encompassing 12 components) expound on the tools needed to continue the healing process. Couples participate in twelve two-hour presentations that dig deeper into the weekend content. The Chicago Community holds post sessions once a week for six  weeks. 

C.O.R.E.

Continuing Our Retrouvaille Experience (C.O.R.E.)

Couples are invited to continue their Retrouvaille journey by participating in a small group that supports and reinforces using the Retrouvaille tools. The positive, safe, and welcoming environment also helps couples to form lasting and strong bonds with others while continuing to strengthen and heal their marriages.
