What is a Christian Experience Weekend?

The weekend is a time of adult renewal held separately for men and woman, 18 years of age or older. It is intended for anyone looking to live life more fully as an adult Christian. The renewal of one’s life in Christ is the focus as each participant examines his or her relationship with self, others, and God.


How is the weekend structured?

The CEW weekend begins Friday night at 7:30 pm and ends about 5:00 pm Sunday. In order to maximize the CEW community experience, all participants spend the entire time together, in one building, sleeping on cots or air mattresses and using their own bedding. Meals are included in the registration fee. 


What happens on a Christian Experiance Weekend?

A series of talks, discussions and activities are conducted by both religious and lay persons which enhance your awareness of God in your life and in the Christian community. Mass will be celebrated during the weekend.


Who should attend?

This retreat weekend includes a strong Catholic emphasis in the talks plus a sacramental presence of the Eucharist and Reconciliation.
