Marriage Encounter leaders meet pope
Daniel and Shelley Ee, the Worldwide Marriage Encounter’s global leaders, meeting with Pope Francis on May 16.
“God bless you, keep working, everything that you do for the family is never enough. Keep working, God bless you.”
Pope Francis said this to Daniel and Shelley Ee, the Worldwide Marriage Encounter’s global leaders, on May 16 at the pope’s general audience in Rome.
During the meeting, the Singaporean couple presented the Holy Father with a copy of the 50th anniversary global-edition book of Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME). During their visit to Rome, they also presented Cardinal Kevin Farrell, Prefect of the Dicastery of Laity, Family and Life, a copy of the book as well as an annual report of the movement.
From May 18-24, the couple, together with fellow international leader Fr Nathaniel Gomez, will chair the WWME World Council Meeting in Madrid.
The world council comprises the continent leaders from Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, Pan-Africa and the
Pacific. The council will meet in Toronto, Canada, next year.
From Madrid, the council will go to Fatima to join the WWME community of Portugal for their annual pilgrimage.
Marking the 50th anniversary of the movement this year, North America is organising a convention to celebrate the occasion.
Daniel and Shelley are scheduled to deliver an address as the global leaders during the June 22-24 convention which has the theme, “We remember, We celebrate, We believe.”
