"Living in Love" Retreats

Discover what over 700 couples in Northeast Kansas have learned: it is possible to be IN LOVE every day!

Living in Love is a parish-based weekend retreat experience for married couples. Presenter couples share insights from science, theology and their own experience, and couples have time to reflect together on the different topics:

  • What are the resources we already have to Live in Love every day?
  • What influences from our families of origin help and hinder us from living in love?
  • What are the cultural barriers that hinder us from living in love?
  • What damages trust and what helps us build more trust in our relationship?
  • How do we effectively heal hurts between us?
  • How do we heal hurts from outside our relationship such as in-laws?
  • How do we proactively build a culture of seeing the good in one another?
  • How do we tap into the grace that God offers us through the Sacrament of Matrimony?
  • What practical strategies can we implement right now to build a culture of love and respect in the home?

Retreat times vary slightly by location, but the average weekend meets 8am-9pm on Saturday and 8am-4pm on Sunday (includes Sunday Mass). Cost is $75/couple, which covers retreat materials, breakfast both days and a romantic dinner on Saturday evening. Couples bring lunch. Overnight accomodations are not provided (most couples sleep at home). For questions, call Brad DuPont, Office of Marriage and Family Life: (913) 647-0301.
