Discovering the Great Mystery
Unveiled provides a vision and hope for a mutually fulfilling and intimate marriage, based on John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.
This is the complete “Unveiled” conference combining the two shorter events, including God’s design for marriage and the skills to build unity, passion and intimacy, as well as healing and reconciliation in marriage.
In this dynamic conference, you will experience renewed intimacy with your spouse (or future spouse) and gain the tools to strengthen the bonds of unity, resolve conflicts, restore passion and heal from past hurts.
(2 evenings, 1 day / 6 talks)
