Hello Married Couples and Priests,
Welcome to Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) in Region 5, which serves married couples and priests throughout the Southeast United States, specifically in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
WWME is the world's largest pro-marriage organization within the Catholic Church. We offer a special life-giving Weekend experience, which helps both Married Couples and Priests to enrich their Sacrament by learning to communicate more effectively with their spouse. In the case of our priest, his spouse is the people he serves. We also provide enrichment programs at several locations throughout the Southeast USA. Our enrichment programs and weekend experiences are offered in both English and Spanish. Many non-Catholic faith expressions also attend our Weekends.
To learn more about ways to help make your good marriage and priesthood GREAT, check out the "Frequently Asked Questions" link on this website. You can also read testimonial messages from couples married from 1 to 60 years and several priests who have attended the Weekend.
Please make some time to push aside your hectic lifestyle and some of your daily distractions so you can focus on your spouse for 44 hours. This is a great opportunity to make your spouse your top priority and renew your passion to know each other more fully. We hope to see you on a Weekend soon!
