[ENGAGED] is a one day conference that seeks to prepare engaged couples for the sacrament of marriage and everyday after. Paul and Gretchen George present engaging sessions throughout the day, using humor and parts of their own story. The talks will center around the following themes: Family of origin, Marriage expectations, Communication, Sexuality, Finances and Spirituality. Through it all, engagement is discerning and preparing for a life- long companionship. When couples begin the hard work now, marriages will start off with a firm foundation, with an understanding of how God intended marriage to be, and how God desires us to live out our marriage vocation.
Who is this for?
This day is for couples engaged to be married in the Catholic Church. If you are a married couple, we invite you to attend one of our [MARRIED] events. This day is not for dating couples, but if you want to contact us about helping you one-on-one, feel free to reach out through our coaching/mentoring form.
What’s included in the Conference fee?
Your registration fee covers the day for you and your fiancé, materials, as well as a light breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Travel, lodging and other meals are on your own. If you are preparing for the sacrament of marriage within the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, you will receive a certificate of completion.
What if my fiancé can’t attend?
This day is meant for both you and your fiancé to experience it together as marriage is 2 people each giving 100%. We don’t recommend coming alone and don’t offer a single rate. If you need help convincing your fiancé to come, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do we need to bring anything?
Bring yourself and your fiancé! If you have a journal, bible, pen, or notebook feel free to bring it as well. If you have any allergies or are on a certain diet, bring what you need. Come comfy and ready to have fun and dig in!
What is the date night option?
