What is a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Community?

A Worldwide Marriage Encounter Community (or Sharing Circle) is a group of couples that have experienced a Marriage Encounter Weekend. The purpose of the group is to provide ongoing support for their marriage relationship, family life and all other relationships around them. The group meets regularly, usually on a monthly basis; a presentation is given followed by a 10/10 and a sharing. The sharing is optional; no one is required to share. Afterward, a few business items are discussed and information with regard to upcoming events are announced. The meeting ends with a prayer, socializing and refreshments. After attending a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend, all are welcome to join a Community group.

In addition to the regular meeting, some communities plan family activities such as summer cookouts, Christmas Caroling; 4th of July parties; ice skating, birthday celebrations, baby showers etc. Some gather on a separate night with their families to pray the Rosary. Belonging to a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Community is like having an extended family; people who genuinely care about you and are there to share your good times and walk with you during your troubled times.

Community groups are formed throughout the Tampa Bay area. It is suggested that a couple join a group that is nearest their home. However, you are welcome to join any group that you are most comfortable with, or meet on days most suited to your schedule. If you are involved in a Community or Share Group, we've also included some guidelines for sharing. They're fairly straight forward and simple.
