Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all CEE weekends through October 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.
Registration for virtual weekends close two weeks prior to start of weekend to allow sufficient time to mail retreat materials to participants.
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.
