T&T selected to host Worldwide Marriage Convention

Tourism Trinidad is pleased to announce that Trinidad has been selected to host the North American Secretariat Worldwide Marriage Encounter Convention 2025 (WWME).

This is the first occasion in the 55-year history of WWME that it will be held outside of the United States. This event will take place from June 20th to 22nd, 2025.

The WWME movement aims to proclaim the value of marriage and Holy Orders in the Church and the world.

This convention brings together couples and priests from throughout North America and the Caribbean, providing them with an opportunity to share experiences, engage in workshops, and connect with like-minded individuals enthusiastic about improving relationships in marriage and the priesthood.

According to a statement from Tourism Trinidad Limited, the North American leadership selected Trinidad due to its rich cultural heritage, warm hospitality, and engaging sites and attractions.

It added Trinidad’s vibrant and diverse community is well-equipped to welcome the estimated 1,500 to 2,000 attendees who will be arriving from different corners of the world.

It said the majority of attendees will arrive in Trinidad from June 18, 2025, ensuring they have ample time to experience the Corpus Christi observances and explore sites and attractions alongside their families.

Tony and Sue Morris of Waterloo, IL and Bishop Michael Warfel of Great Falls, MT visited Trinidad and, on September 23, officially launched Convention 2025.

“We are most pleased to be hosting the 2025 Worldwide Marriage Encounter Convention,” said Carla Cupid, CEO of Tourism Trinidad.

“This is a significant event for Trinidad and Tobago, and we look forward to welcoming couples from all over the world to our shores. It shows the growing confidence internationally for our destination as always in season for any activity.”

Tourism Trinidad Limited said Trinidad’s selection as the host destination underscores Trinidad’s growing reputation as a world-class destination capable of hosting prestigious events of global significance.

“This is why Tourism Trinidad saw it fit to play an instrumental part in getting the bid in for the event,” it said.

As the convention draws near, Tourism Trinidad said it is committed to collaborating closely with the organizing committee to ensure a seamless and unforgettable experience for all attendees.
