Return to In-Person Weekends

Birmingham Catholic Engaged Encounter is pleased to announce the return to in-person CEE weekends. The July and August weekends will include overnight accomodations at St. Bernard Abbey Retreat Center in Cullman. The June, September, and October 2022 weekends will be hosted at different parishes in the Diocese of Birmingham and will be day events only. Select one of these weekends near where you live, otherwise accomodations are on your own. Please visit our registration page for details about available weekends.

Welcome to the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama home page for Catholic Engaged Encounter (CEE). We are a community of volunteers that organize and present marriage preparation weekends to serve the Diocese of Birmingham. Although we are not professionals, we follow guidelines and presentation outlines developed by our national organization. We welcome you to browse our pages and hope that you will consider making an Engaged Encounter Weekend as part of your marriage preparation. It may be the greatest gift you can give to your future spouse.
