Weekends & Registration

Planning a wedding can be a fun and exciting time. It can also be stressful. Catholic Engaged Encounter offers a weekend-long retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life, where you can focus on each other, your relationship, and what it means to become a sacrament. While couples spend the majority of the retreat together - there is not much free time. Couples should plan to start their day a little earlier and work a little later than they typically would on an average weekend at home. 

Below is the current list of scheduled retreats in the Diocese of Stockton.  Please choose the weekend that works best for you, and click on the Register button. If your retreat of choice is full, you should register for the waiting list and your second choice to assure your spot on a retreat. Our retreats do fill up 30-90 days prior to retreats.

Please note that the retreat that goes from Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. to as late as 10 p.m., and from 8 a.m. to as late as 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
