If you put in the energy and allow yourself to experience vulnerability with your fiancé, then this will help you grow closer to each other and also help yourself grow as a person.

What is CEE? What is an Engaged Encounter?

Engaged Encounter is an investment in the future – a weekend experience in which an atmosphere is created that enables each couple to concentrate exclusively on one another while free of the pressures and interruptions of daily life. This Weekend is not a recreational retreat. It is a program designed to give each couple an opportunity to discuss honestly with their fiancé, in a face-to-face manner, their strengths and weaknesses, desires, ambitions, goals, their attitudes about money, sex, family, their role in the Church and in society.
