Cancellations of Diocesan Marriage Prep retreats & other Events due to Corona Virus
ENGAGED COUPLES WEEKENDS
In response to the threat of the Covid 19 Corona virus, the Diocese of Baton Rouge has cancelled the Engaged Encounter weekend of March 20-22 and now also The Call to Love retreat, scheduled for the weekend of April 17-19.
Couples who are scheduled for either of these weekends may wish to reschedule their plans for a later weekend date. If scheduling a later date is not possible, couples may consult with their pastors about fulfilling their marriage preparation requirements by completing an on-line marriage preparation process. Pastors will have specific information on those on-line courses.

Marriage Preparation Retreats for Engaged Couples
Engaged couples can now choose from one of two weekend retreats that the Diocese offers. Couples may choose The New Called To Love retreat weekend, which focuses on the readings, prayers and vows of the marriage ceremony to discover what God is calling them to in marriage, or the Engaged Encounter weekend, which focuses on writing and sharing exercises that challenge the partners to explore important aspects of marriage. Both retreats are offered in an overnight weekend format beginning on Friday evening and ending on Sunday afternoon.
(The Called to Love retreat replaces the one day Life Choice program). Dates for these retreats are located in the next column on this page.
