Marriage Retreat
Put Out Into the Deep

The Family Apostolate hosted a married couples retreat on February 19th at the beautiful Shrine of St. Anthony in Ellicott City, MD. The day included mass, inspiring talks, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and a special, individual blessing for each couple by Fr. Vin.

“It’s amazing how one day someone walks into your life, and you cannot remember how you ever lived without them.”


Retreat Comments

"We had an amazing experience at the marriage retreat. Both my husband and I learned a lot and are working towards a better and stronger marriage. We look forward to attending more retreats in the future. We plan on doing the same exercise regularly with each other. Please keep us in your mailing/text list for upcoming retreats." 

"It was wonderful!! I loved the talks, but I also loved tapping into the “treasures” of the church to enrich us! The rosary, Confession, Holy Mass, Adoration, stations of the Cross, personal prayer of the church through Holy Priesthood…sacred music.  It was perfect." 

"Your retreat was such a blessing for us. You were the vehicle of God's blessing to us as a confirmation; that we renewed our vow of our marriage to seeing God as a couple, and in the Marriage ministries we lead. He had begun within the 47 years of blessing He has given us, and at this time shown up as His consolations of "Yes" we are meant to be present "here" in this place."

This was our first marital retreat, our expectations were met and exceeded. We are not a “group think” couple, so the venue without an excess of interpersonal sharing amongst the group was appreciated...and your “message delivery” style and personal sharing were “on point’ and meaningful. We will definitely try to attend future retreats."
