REGISTRATION & INFORMATION
Please read carefully.
Planning a wedding can be a fun and exciting time. It can also be stressful. Catholic Engaged Encounter offers a weekend-long retreat at an affordable price, 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. Attendance for the entire weekend is required. Catholic Engaged Encounter of Stockton, Inc. retreats are commuter in nature - meaning you drive to the location in the morning and go home at night. Catholic Engaged Encounter of Stockton, Inc. does not provide overnight accommodations. At this time, we ONLY present weekends in English, but do offer workbooks in Spanish.

Thanks to the generosity of past retreat attendees, Catholic Engaged Encounter of Stockton, Inc. has a limited amount of funds to use for financial aid. Financial assistance is intended for couples struggling to afford life's daily essentials, and paying the full fees of a Catholic Engaged Encounter of Stockton, Inc. retreat would further hinder a couple's ability to afford essentials. If you need financial assistance, please fill out this form, and we will contact you within 3-5 business days with a discount code based upon your needs and funds available. Applications and financial aid awards are kept strictly confidential. No couple will be turned away because they cannot afford the weekend costs.
