Images from Fatima Retreat HouseRETREAT
So many, many places,
So many, many moments
On the go,
How could I not say "Yes" to the bench that beckons,
"Sit and rest awhile,"
To the sky whose wide open arms inspire me to dream,
To the million rustling leaves waving,
"Be free,"
And to the God whispering,
"I love you.
Won't you spend time with me?"
How could I not say "Yes"
To a place, to moments,
Like this?
~Cathy Lamperski Dearing

These days offer participants the opportunity to come away to Fatima in a relaxed, calm and quiet atmosphere-an opportunity to 'unplug' from the outside world. Step away from electronics, phones, computers and such and focus your attention on your relationship with God. Prayer, silence, and your focus on listening is at the heart of these days.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend

A weekend of discovery; A lifetime of love!

This could be THE weekend for the two of you to explore, rediscover, and reconnect. Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a weekend getaway that helps married couples rediscover themselves as individuals and as a couple. The weekend is God-centered and comes out of the roots of the Christian faith. Our Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekends are presented in the Roman Catholic faith expression, however we welcome couples of all faith traditions to join us!

Guided by a team of volunteer couples and a priest, each participant explores their relationship with each other, their spouse and their family. The weekend format helps couples communicate openly and honestly, without any group sharing, therapy or marriage counseling. These weekends take place across the country and in 90+ countries and are hosted here in Indianapolis at Fatima Retreat House twice per year in May and November.

For more information or to register, contact Jill and Mark Levine at (317) 888-1892 or visit www.wwme.org.
