I organized the first couple day at Holy Family Church Shenzhen last May 17, 2014 after two preparation meetings with the volunteers. There were 13 couples registered for the events, unfortunately only 14 persons attended including the volunteers. It’s around 3 and a half hour.
There were games, singing, watching movie “Fireproof” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIGcQRzMm-c, and sharing both group and couple.
Hong Kong Diocesan Pastoral Centre for Marriage and Family gave booklets and card “Virgin of the Covenant (Icon of the Married Couple), while Sr. Joseph Lourdes’s family gave popcorn. The workshop on marriage gave me the idea in organizing this event. Thank you very much!
At evaluation, most of them wrote great as they realized the important of faith sharing and the need to learn about faith and marriage. They also wish to have the gathering once every two months.
We learned that we should send reminder ahead of time as several of them forgot about the event, so we plan to organize it once again but open for either husband or wife.
