Well, there is good news! The help and support you received during your weekend can continue through Worldwide Marriage Encounter communities. There are Community Groups throughout Australia where you can get together with other couples that have found the Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend to be a crucial tool in keeping their marriage alive and vibrant.
A Worldwide Marriage Encounter Community (or Love circle) is a group of couples that have experienced a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend and have found valuable tools to keep their marriage alive and vibrant. The purpose of the group is to provide ongoing support for their marriage relationship, family life and all other relationships around them. The group gathers regularly, usually on a monthly basis; a presentation is given followed by a 10/10 and a sharing. The sharing is optional; no one is required to share. Afterward, a few bits of housekeeping are discussed and information regarding upcoming events are announced. The meeting generally ends with a prayer, socializing and refreshments.
Attending a community gathering is like being on an extended weekend – journeying with other couples who value marriage.
In addition to the regular meeting, some communities plan family activities such as Christmas parties, dinner dances and camping weekends. Our Communities are grouped into geographic areas for convenience. It is suggested that a couple attend a gathering that is nearest their home. However, you are welcome to be part of any group that you are most comfortable with, or meet on days most suited to your schedule.
In addition to monthly gatherings, most states conduct Formation Days on which all the community groups meet for a full day presentation by an experienced couple and/ or a priest.
