Weekends - More About the Weekend
Where are the Weekends Held?

Our San Antonio Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekends are held in a number of different locations and may be labeled as "residential" (where you stay in a private room/bath from the time you check in on Friday until you check out on Sunday) or "non residential" (where you stay with us a few hours on Friday, all day Saturday, and most of the day Sunday for all presentations and meals, but return home to sleep at night). For residential retreats, the rooms are private and fully air conditioned with private baths.

March 17, 2023 - March 19, 2023 will be at T-Bar-M Retreat Center

June 2, 2023 - June 4, 2023 will be non-residential and meet at OLPH, Selma

What to Bring?

We suggest you bring casual clothing.  It's also good to toss in a jacket as the conference room can be cool to some people. You might also want to pack sneakers to comfortably walk around the site.

You are welcome to bring a cooler with snacks for your room.  Water, coffee, tea and ice are readily available.  Please note that NO alcohol should be brought onto the premises.  

What are the Start and Stop Times of the Weekend?

The weekend presentations begin promptly at 8:00 PM on Friday, so we ask that you check in and get settled into your room no later than 7:30 PM on Friday.  We suggest you eat dinner before arriving on Friday.  

The weekend officially ends around 4:30 PM on Sunday.

Will There be Meals Provided?

Yes, meals will be provided on your weekend:

On Saturday, breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided.  On Sunday only breakfast and lunch is provided.   We eat as a group.

What does the Weekend Cost?

A non-refundable fee of $200.00 is required to confirm your application.  In addition, you will be asked to consider making a "free will" donation on the weekend.

No couple or priest is ever denied the chance to renew their marriage because they are facing financial difficulties. This concern should not influence your decision to attend a Marriage Encounter Weekend. Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a tax-exempt organization.

All contributions made on or in connection with the Marriage Encounter weekend are confidential. 

There is limited capacity; so early reservations are encouraged.
