Beyond Cana Ministry

Beyond Cana logo photoBeyond Cana® offers the time and tools to enrich and strengthen healthy marriages — with God and His direction for us at the center. This retreat is designed to enrich the marriages of couples who want to focus on the communication, respect, love, and intimacy that are so integral to a good marriage. A blend of spiritual and practical talks, reflection, and prayer are combined with useful tools designed to improve communication and your relationship with your spouse — even if it’s good now. All this is done from a Catholic perspective, with an understanding of marriage as a sacrament.

Our Next Retreat

Our next retreat is February 7-9, 2020 on our St. Francis of Assisi campus. The weekend retreat begins Friday at 5:15 pm with check-in and a light supper and ends with the Sunday 11:15 am Mass. Childcare is available throughout the retreat, but space is limited! If you’re looking for some special time to reconnect and relax with your spouse, then this retreat is for you! Read through our brochure for more details. 

Time Alone

couple3In today’s world where busy-ness is virtuous, wouldn’t it be great to grab some time just for the two of you? Each couple is given time alone to discuss issues important to their marriage and their relationship. No one will observe or interfere in any way with each couple’s time alone. Nor will you be required to share any of your discussions. Spiritual time is interspersed throughout the weekend — time for reflection, forgiveness, sharing the Word of God, and each other.

Hear From Other Couples

Beyond Cana® uses a communications tool that guides you to identify, focus, and deal with issues that challenge your relationship in an intimate, safe environment—just you, your spouse and God. Read what other couples have said about their Beyond Cana retreat experience here: Past Retreatants.
