What is Formation?
A formation weekend is the next step in your Retrouvaille journey after completing an initial weekend and post sessions.
The weekend is led by a Retrouvaille couple and a priest or minister. Couples dig deeper in the healing process and learn additional tools to maintain trust, respect and mutual growth in their marriage. Quite often, participants gain a profound understanding of themselves and their spouse.
The primary goals of Formation are:
What is Discipleship?
Discipleship is a new program that was created by two faithful and humble Retrouvaille couples in 2017. This is an excellent program for seasoned Retrouvaille couples who want to share their talents within our communities.
The weekend will consist of:
Much like an initial weekend, we do not share all of the details of this weekend. We wish for participants to experience their own journey in the Discipleship program. A priest and two to four couples present the program. After completing the Chicago area Discipleship program, participants will be encouraged to present the program, alongside qualified couples, within their communities. After completing these steps, couples will be eligible to be qualified Discipleship program presenters.
What are Advanced Writing Session(s)?
These sessions are similar to a writing-to-heal day. However, this version will last an entire weekend. The sessions allow couples and priests to write introductions, portions of post talks, and/or stage talks while having a mentor present.
The ultimate goals of these sessions are:
Spending this uninterrupted and guided time writing and being mentored will help these goals to be successfully achieved.
Will there be a donation request during or after the triple-event weekend?
Heavenly Father, Author of marriage, through Your divine providence You have brought us together to join in Your mission to heal hurting marriages and families. Shower us with the graces we need to serve You together as a community of disciples. Fill us with Your divine mercy and love so we can pour it out on all those You put on Your path. We trust that You will provide the financial and manual resources needed to accomplish this mission. Let us always keep You the center of this awesome, healing ministry.
Holy family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, patron saint of Retrouvaille, pray for us.
"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." - Colossians 3:14
