The Catholic Engaged Encounter (CEE) weekend is the preferred marriage preparation program of the Catholic Diocese of Victoria. It is recognized both nationally and internationally, as a quality and highly effective marriage preparation program designed to meet the needs of today's engaged couples.
The CEE weekend is Catholic oriented; however, it is open to all, including those planning an interdenominational marriage.
The weekend focuses on the following:
The CEE weekend is an intense weekend of involvement during which each couple is offered the time and opportunity to question, examine, and deepen their relationship with each other and with God through personal reflection and couple dialogues. Couples are challenged to explore their relationship in a much deeper and more honest way than ever before.
Through a series of ideas presented by the team of married couples and a Catholic Priest, the engaged couple is stimulated to dialogue privately with each other on all aspects of married life - always from the viewpoint of their own lives.
