The MER (Marriage Enrichment Retreat) was held at Dasya Porvorim Goa on 27th and 28th July 2013, where in all 8 couples including the service team (Christopher and Sheila) were present.
The retreat was condensed to two days keeping in mind the difficulties expressed in having a longer duration for this retreat. On one hand, there were couples who were married for 40 years while on the other hand, there were couples who had celebrated 10 years of marriage. Speakers chosen for all the seven teachings were couples. Both spouses spoke on the topic bringing about a new dimension to teachings.
The Participants benefited in a huge way and so did the speakers since the retreat required preparation from both spouses. The Inner healing session was the high point at the MER and the exchange of vows at the Holy Eucharist was the climax. Every couple expressed a renewed joy in their relationships and pledged to work hard towards executing the Action Plan that they had prepared.
