CHRISTIANS ENCOUNTER CHRIST
This movement within the Catholic Church, formerly known as Cursillo, now known as CEC, is a lay Catholic movement, guided by the Holy spirit and is sponsered by the Archdiocese of Omaha to help advance the Pastoral Vision of "One Church, Encountering Christ, Equipping Disciples and Living Mercy", CEC is an opportunity for every Catholic or non-Catholic Christian who wished to strengthen and ignite their faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ. CEC is a combined effort of laity and clergy offering a personal encounter with Jesus over a 2 1/2 day weekend experience, beginning on Friday evening and ending on Sunday night. Your faith and love for Christ and His Church will be strengthened spiritually as you live and study with priests, deacons, and laity with talks, discussion, prayer and song.
The upcoming weekends for Spring of 2019 at the Archdiocese Retreat Center near 60th and Military in Omaha are as folloes: MEN's: March 8 -10 and WOMEN's: March 22 - 24. For further information contact Deacon Terry Ficenec at 402-677-5643 or check out CEC's webpage at www.cecomaha.org.
