Enrich your relationship with your spouse at a Marriage Encounter Ludlow Pennsylvania experience!

The casual, “unplugged” atmosphere of this weekend experience will enhance your time together so that you and your spouse can use these precious 44 hours to get away from jobs, chores, and family to learn and practice unique, loving, and effective communication techniques that will help you discover a new, more joyful way to communicate for the rest of your lives.


  • Two nights (Friday & Saturday) lodging  for you and your spouse at the stunning, hotel-style Olmstead Retreat Center situated next to the Olmsted Mansion on a hillside in the Allegheny National Forest.
  • Three (3) meals on Saturday (breakfast, lunch, dinner), and two (2) meals on Sunday (breakfast and lunch) each for you and your spouse.
  • All program materials used during your experience as well as access to resource materials following your experience.

We want your Marriage Encounter Ludlow Pennsylvania experience to be as stress-free as possible for the two of you, so we have already negotiated a contract for your lodging and meals. You only need to pack your bags and show up!

Lutheran Marriage Encounter is a 501(c)3 organization that depends entirely on couple contributions to continue this ministry. We offer assistance through our “Dream Fund” to couples whose finances cannot stretch to cover the per couple lodging/meals cost. On Sunday afternoon of your Marriage Encounter Ludlow Pennsylvania experience you will be given the opportunity to contribute to Lutheran Marriage Encounter’s “Dream Fund” to help us provide this experience to more couples. Your contribution is completely voluntary and we thank you for any donation you can make.
