"This was one of the most memorable, beautiful moments of my life.  Beyond grateful for this experience.  The love, warmth, acceptance that allowed me to be vulnerable, and let Christ come into my heart." - Shelly W

After a CEC weekend, from Chris L.:  "God often times uses the ugly and awful to prepare a new masterpiece."

"In all of my 46 years as a priest in the Omaha Archdiocese, CEC is the best retreat experience for lay people ... it's effective, its longevity speaks for itself and it WORKS!" - Fr. Norm Hunke

"My relationship with Jesus, literally, went from my head to my heart in ONE weekend. It became so PERSONAL!" - CT 

"What would YOU be willing to try to "fire-up" your faith?  Would you be willing to get out of your comfort zone & take a chance to meet Jesus in a much more intimate way?  Coming on a 2.5 day CEC retreat has the potential of adding greatly to your eternal reward.  What are you afraid of?  Take a chance and see what happens.  I highly recommend everyone to go on a CEC weekend!  I have seen so many change their lives ... you owe it to yourself!"  - 
Fr. Tom Weisbecker
