Continuing Our Retrouvaille Experience (CORE)  is an ongoing support group for those who have attended a Retrouvaille program and who are serious about making their marriage work.

Experience has shown that going it alone results in dialogue becoming less frequent. This leads to frustration and some judge that the program or we have failed. Participation in CORE helps keep dialogue going and that benefits relationships. Being involved with other couples in CORE who share a common interest in the sacrament of marriage supports effort to grow in a marriage.

CORE groups meet once a month.  A typical CORE meeting consists of an opening, a presentation, a dialogue question, an open sharing and a closing.   CORE meetings are held at in two locations in the Maryland and Washington DC area:
