Saving the Marriage?

Reconciliation may be possible even if you’re struggling or considering divorce.
Below you will find resources that could be helpful in saving and renewing your marriage.


People can and do change and marriages can change for the better. The many couples that have participated in the Retrouvaille Program over the years decided to make the investment in each other to continue their journey of marriage. It can be a difficult choice, but in making your decision, consider the investment you have already made in each other. Reconciliation and healing are possible if you are willing to put them behind you and look beyond the hurt and the pain in order to rediscover each other in a new and positive way. Retrouvaille can be the fresh start your marriage needs.

*Retrouvaille is highly recommended by the Diocese as a resource for struggling marriages.
