A WWME weekend gives couples the tools of evangelization.
The heart of WWME’s philosophy is the deep seated believe that the Sacraments of Matrimony and Holy Orders are powerful and precious gifts given by God to the church. The renewal of these sacraments is the special gift that Worldwide Marriage Encounter has to bring to the church and the world. After a weekend, couples come to a deeper appreciation of the value of their marriage relationship, as well as their relationship with God. In living the concepts, their sacraments come alive and many discover their vocation for the very first time.
When the vision of who they truly are as sacramental people has taken hold in their heart and in their daily lives, they are empowered to step out of their comfort zone and become witnesses of God’s love. An encountered couple’s new awareness of their Sacrament calls them to reflect God’s love more clearly to their children and to become beacons of light in the parish community and in the world.
WWME is faithful to the Roman Catholic Church’s teaching that marriage is a covenant that exists between one man and one woman. Any reference to marriage or couple made by WWME is in this context.
