The leadership of Worldwide Marriage Encounter mourned the death of Jesuit Father Chuck Gallagher, considered the driving force in creating what is the original faith-based marriage enrichment program.

Gallagher died July 21 in New Jersey after a short illness. He was 85.

“It is with profound sadness that we announce Father Chuck’s passing.

And yet we know he is with the Lord at this very moment,” said a joint statement from Tony and Cathy Witczak and Father Emile Frische, who make up Worldwide Marriage Encounter’s international leadership team.
