Christians Encounter Christ

Omaha, Nebraska

Christians Encounter Christ (CEC) is an opportunity to AWAKEN & IGNITE your faith!  It is a combined effort of priests, deacons, and laity offering a personal encounter with Jesus over a 2.5-day weekend experience, Friday evening-Sunday evening as you share meals, celebrate mass, sing, listen to talks & life experiences, have discussions, meditation and personal reflection - ALL on a beautiful 30-acre private peaceful campus. 

"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. Norman Hunke

"What would YOU be willing to try to "fire-up" your faith?  Would you be willing to get out of your comfort zone and take a chance to meet Jesus in a much more intimate way?  Coming on a 2 1/2 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
