Encounter weekends are held in Cullman, Alabama approximately 50 miles north of
Birmingham, just off I-65. The location used is the Benedictine Sisters Retreat
Take I-65 North
from Birmingham or (South
from Huntsville) to exit #308. Turn East.
Follow US-278 for approx 3 miles through town until you reach Convent Road, turn
left; this is a T-intersection. (Convent Rd will be the first red light after the 4-lane
road changes to a 2-lane road. If you get to St. Bernards
Abbey, you have gone too far.) The Conference
Center is the second turn on
the right, at the stoned-wall entrance.
Take a left at the Sacred Heart statue, go around the building passed the covered entrance and park at the bottom of the hill on the right. Signs will point you to registration in Mary Hall.
Capacity at the facility is limited, so all attendees share a room with another
attendee of the same gender. Staff at the facility are
not able to answer questions about Engaged Encounter.
