Mission Statement

The Marriage Encounter and Family Movement of California (MEFM-CA), one of the many communities of the Marriage Encounter in the Filipino Perspective (MEFP), under the auspices of the Office of Family Life in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, humbly accepts its mission to assist couples to bring God to the center of their relationships. MEFM commits to provide couples with a Christian experience and ongoing community support. MEFM commits to give couples the opportunity to examine their lives together through dialogue and sharing of feelings at a Marriage Encounter Weekend. MEFM commits to build inclusive communities with other marriage encounter communities and to remove any barriers that stand in the way of MEFM being a welcoming community. With Jesus as our focus, MEFM is dedicated to helping couples to live out God’s plan for their lives with the one person God created just for them. We fulfill our mission under the loving patronage of our Blessed Virgin Mary.
