Heart to Heart Retreats are currently being held with some adaptations for CDC guidelines for Covid safety. For questions about these adaptations, please feel free to contact us.
The Heart to Heart Weekend Retreat for the Engaged is one of the requirements for engaged couples preparing for Marriage in the Diocese of Rapid City. The retreat is designed to provide couples with an opportunity to deepen your relationship with one another and with God through a series of talks, activities, prayer experiences and quiet time for reflection. We ask you to bring an attitude of eagerness and openness to talk with your beloved, to pray to God, and to quietly listen to your heart. This is a chance to step away from the ordinary–from work, from recreation and from distractions. It is a time for you to relax and to spend quiet time with each other and with God.
The retreat begins with dinner at 6pm on Friday and concludes after lunch on Sunday. You’re welcome to check-in anytime between 5pm and 6pm. Meals are provided from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch.
Register for the Heart to Heart Retreat for engaged couples.
