What is a Christian Experience Weekend

image3

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. 

Retreat Structure

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. 

Who Should Attend?

Anyone wishing to grow in their faith, strengthen their personal relationship with God and become engaged with their Christian community. Non-Catholics are welcome to attend. This retreat weekend includes a strong Catholic emphasis in the talks plus a sacramental presence of the Eucharist and Reconciliation and the celebration of Mass on Sunday.
