2021 “Virtue”al Retreat
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and diocesan restrictions, we were unable to host a traditional CEW Retreat for men and women in 2021. However, from February 12-14, 2021 we were able to host a virtual retreat and renewal by streaming three talks (one per day) to our Facebook page. Feel free to watch or re-watch one or all of the talks below as we hope it helps you grow in your faith and relationship with God.
Talk # 1 – Faith
Talk #2 – Hope
Talk #3 – Love
If you liked or were intrigued by any of the above talks, please consider attending our next traditional CEW Retreats which will take place in 2022.
CEW Dates for 2022:
Women’s CEW Retreat weekend will be February 4-6, 2022
Men’s CEW Retreat weekend will be February 18-20, 2022
The purpose of the Christian Experience Weekend (CEW) is to strengthen and enrich your relationship with God. A special time and place, away from the busy routine of daily living are provided where a true Christian community will develop in a variety of ways.
The Christian Experience Weekend is not a retreat consisting of strict silence and meditation. It is rather a shared Christian experience that grew out of the realization that the Christian life has to be experienced before it can be properly appreciated.
The weekend is intended for any person who wants to grow in their relationship with Christ and others; the person who is looking for more out of life – the “fullness of life” and joy that Jesus came to bring us. The first weekend is for women only. The second weekend is for men only.
A team of lay people, Priests, and Spiritual Directors conduct the weekend, which includes: talks and discussions, prayer services and Masses, and also time for reflection, good food and fun.
