Engaged Encounter Retreat in Malibu

As part of a pre-requisite to getting married in a Catholic Church, we needed to do an engaged encounter retreat.

So we decided to look around for places that provided it. My sister, Joy, and her husband, Tom, did theirs in Santa Barbara before they got married and had recommended and showed us the Serra Retreat Center in Malibu. Although there were places up here in the Bay Area to do the retreat, we decided to make a trip out of the whole experience as well as getting a chance to hang out with Geri’s family.

Our facilitators were really awesome and shared some really great and touching stories about their lives. The retreat grounds were very peaceful and had scenic views of the ocean and hills.

It was an intense and very enlightening weekend and at the end of it all felt very connected and on the same page about things and even more excited about getting married. We definetly recommend doing this type of retreat prior to getting married.
