Join us on February 6-10, 2025 at the gorgeous Dreams Las Mareas in Costa Rica.

Why did we start the Catholic Couples Getaway? Because we believe that everything comes down to marriage, family, and faith, and we want your marriage and faith to be strong. Our world needs you, your marriage, and your faith. We want to start a revolution of joyful Catholic couples!

That is the reason we are offering another Catholic Couples Getaway--to give you a chance to focus on the most important thing in your life: your vocation to your spouse. So why not join to focus on your marriage, your sacred calling?

In Costa Rica be lifted up, inspired, and mentored by Chris & Natalie Stefanick, Fr. Shawn Monahan, OMV, and Mike & Alicia Hernon!
