Marriage Enrichment Retreat is designed to be a quiet and reflective time for couples to focus on God, each other, prayer, and spiritual growth.

Surrounded by its scenic view of the Bay Area, Our Lady of Santa Clara Retreat Center offers the space for you and your spouse to truly escape the daily distractions of life and focus on your most important relationship: your marriage!

This retreat is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius with opportunities for reflections on marriage led by Fr. John Hopkins, LC, private spiritual dialogue with your spouse, time for each couple to reflect, and the renewal of wedding vows. This experience is designed to give couples concrete tools to help deepen their understanding of themselves and their relationship, and the opportunity to have conversations that help a marriage flourish.

Fr. John Hopkins was ordained in 1991 by Pope John Paul II. He served for 18 years in Washington, DC, and helped found Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center and the Center for Family Development. He is president emeritus of Divine Mercy University, which integrates the best of modern psychology with Catholic faith. He has degrees in Humanities, Philosophy, Psychology and Moral Theology.

This retreat will help you:

  • Reflect, Refocus, & Rejuvenate Your Marriage.
  • Press the "RENEWAL" Button on Your Marriage.

Couples that would benefit from this workshop:

  • Everyone from newlyweds to seniors.
  • Those who wish to take their marriage from good to great!

Should you desire, priests will be accessible for discussion, confession, and private conversation.

Most importantly, this retreat provides the opportunity for a shared spiritual experience to nurture your lives as a couple.

Cost of this retreat: $500.00 per couple
