Worldwide Marriage Encounter Alberta & BC

Registered Name: WORLD WIDE MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER SOCIETY

Business Number: 119304913RR0001

Since 1968, over a million Catholic couples, priests and nuns in over 99 countries have experienced a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend. Worldwide Marriage Encounter is dedicated to enriching marriages for all married couples regardless of age or how many years married. Your generous donation will go a long way in helping us reach out to couples in our Alberta & BC region.

WWME offers married couples an opportunity to explore, enhance and deepen the communication in their relationship through a weekend experience. In addition, couples are offered on-going support for their marriage through communication tools, couple to couple follow up programs and community events. 

WWME is a non-profit organization and although we are supported by the Catholic Church, we do not receive any funding from them. We depend completely on the deep generosity of the couples attending the Weekends as they invest in the dream for a more loving world.

WE HAVE A DREAM! But WE NEED YOUR HELP! It is the dream of WWME to change the world one couple at a time and your donation will help us achieve that dream by helping offset the costs of hotels, retreat centers, enrichment materials and training presenters. There are thousands of couples out there seeking answers for their relationship and ways to not only stay married, but be happy and healthy in their marriage and family lives as well.

PAY IT FORWARD! Invest in better families and a better world! We are so thankful and blessed by whatever you give.

God bless you!

What People Are Saying

"Our lives are full of hectic schedules, kids, work, kids! It seems we never had a chance to really talk let alone romance each other. Now we have a tool to use to keep US on the front burner. Thank goodness we made a weekend - we are more alive and in love than we could ever have imagined."

— Joan & Bob, married 16 years

"Don't wait! Don't put it off! We should have made a weekend 20 years ago, and we would have saved so much time and energy. We talk now, REALLY talk, and listen to each other like never before. We would recommend the weekend for every married couple!"

— Lily & Hector, married 32 years

"We learned about win-win fighting for our relationship on the Weekend, and this was just the beginning of our new lease on our marriage. We know now that we can "dialogue" every day to prevent a lot of those fights, but even better we know we love each other even when we disagree."

— Rosalie & John, married 10 years

"My husband and I belong to different churches, and this has caused tension between us sometimes. We found out on our weekend that God is in our marriage no matter what and we can work out our differences with respect and love. I feel so relieved that this issue doesn’t pull us apart any longer."

— Barbara & Peter, married 6 years
