Weekend Schedule

Virtual Weekends Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all CEE weekends through May 2021 will be held virtually via Zoom. The format and content of the virtual CEE retreat weekend has NOT changed - only the method of delivery. We've found that the virtual weekend format works best when we limit the weekends to 15 couples; however, we may add additional virtual weekends based on need and community volunteer availability.

For more information, please see our Virtual CEE weekend information page.

The cost to attend a virtual Catholic Engaged Encounter weekend sponsored in the Diocese of Birmingham is $125 per couple.

In-Person Weekends

All in-person weekends are held at the Benedictine Sisters Retreat Center in Cullman, AL. The weekend begins promptly at 8:00 p.m. Friday night and ends around 3:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon. The weekend concludes with Mass. Please plan to arrive at the retreat center between 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Friday night in order to register and check-in to your room before the first presentation begins.

The cost to attend an in-person Catholic Engaged Encounter weekend sponsored in the Diocese of Birmingham is:

  • $290 for couples that are residents of Alabama and being married in Alabama
  • $315 for couples that are not residents of Alabama and are being married or prepared for marriage out of State
