…A Lifeline for Marriages
A program to Help Couples Heal and Renew their Marriages
As one professional counselor wrote:
“I’m pleased to report that every couple I’ve referred has been very pleased they attended and found it helpful. Not just for immediate help with their marital conflicts, but also with the ongoing group support and practical tools that Retrouvaille provides.
Not every couple who seeks couple counseling or who attends Retrouvaille will save their marriages. Most will. I tell clients of mine if they attend Retrouvaille, ‘You’ll do a year’s worth of therapy in one weekend.’ And ‘If coming to weekly counseling is like a doctor’s visit, doing Retrouvaille is putting your marriage in the hospital.’ I know, my wife and I attended in 1991 when we had 1 and three year old children.
I’ve referred couples who were devout in their faith; those who have lapsed in their spiritual practices; those who have no organized spiritual background; those who are committed atheists and agnostics: and can report that all have benefited from this program’s focus to help with troubled marriages.”

Although Retrouvaille is sanctioned by the Roman Catholic Church, it receives no monetary support from the church; and is open to couples of all faiths, as well as to those with no specific spiritual beliefs. The leadership of ROSA consists not only of Catholics, but also Baptists, Presbyterians, and Anglican Christians. We are unabashedly Christ-centered, and use some scriptural wisdom pertaining to marriage in the course, but there is no proselytizing for any specific denomination. The focus is on saving marriages.
We are a completely volunteer ministry; there are no paid members at any level of the organization; we receive no financial support from any denomination or corporate source; all monies come from donations from participating couples. The program is not without costs; the amount required to provide the 2-month course is several hundred dollars per couple, but… no couple is ever turned away due to their inability to pay.
