Welcome to Hawaii Catholic Engaged Encounter

The Engaged Encounter Weekend offers couples a unique opportunity to look at their commitment to each other in a deeper way as they prepare for marriage.

Though Catholic in sponsorship, this experience is open to any man and woman who are engaged to be married wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together. The Weekend is an in-depth, private, personal, marriage preparation experience within the context of Catholic faith and values.

“We are a group of couples and ordained clergy committed to working in the Catholic Church through the ministry to the pre-married. We offer with this apostolate an experiential weekend that calls a man and a woman a couple to strive for a sacramental way of life through the vocation of marriage.”
