Worldwide Marriage Encounter Fr. Chuck Gallagher S. J. Legacy Fund

"Love One Another As I Have Loved You" John 15:12

Fr. Chuck Gallagher, S.J., developed the Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) program after attending a series of conferences created by a young Spanish priest, Fr. Gabriel Calvo. Fr. Chuck realized that by building on the power of this program, the Sacraments of Marriage and Holy Orders could be strengthened, the entire Catholic Church would benefit and that this mission could ultimately change the world.

Fr. Chuck’s passion for WWME and his vision of changing the world inspired many. His drive and determination has enabled millions of couples and priests to experience this special enrichment weekend.

Today, almost fifty years later, WWME has a presence in over 90 countries. Millions have experienced the weekend and WWME continues to be a life-giving and life-changing force in our Church and in our world.
