Spirit-filled. Belonging. Head to heart.

Christians Encounter Christ (CEC) is a 2 1/2 day, overnight weekend experience

given by men or women who have previously attended a CEC weekend.

With fellowship, faith sharing, hospitality, music, individual & group activities, sacraments, and more, participants step away from everyday routines to reflect on their personal lives and spiritual journeys. A person comes away with a greater sense of priorities in life, a closer relationship with God and

meaningful friendships with other men or women of faith.

(Men and women attend separate weekends.)

No matter where you are in life, we invite YOU to join us!

CEC is held at Columban Fathers, Bellevue, NE.

All-inclusive cost $150 for food & lodging. Financial scholarships available.

Pre-registration necessary.

"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." - SW​​

There are two ways we can come to KNOW God, intellectually with our mind and experientially with our heart.  Jesus, literally went from my head to my heart,

"in between" this CEC weekend experience AND it has made ALL the difference in my life & faith, both then and now - CT

"Coming to a CEC retreat has the potential of adding greatly to your eternal reward. 

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
