Catholic Engaged Encounter (CEE) is recognized, both nationally and internationally, as a highly effective program providing quality marriage preparation designed to meet the needs of today's engaged couples.

It is an intensive weekend of work during which each couple is offered the time and opportunity to question, examine, and deepen their relationship with each other and with God. Couples are challenged to explore their relationship in a much deeper, more honest way than they may have before.

Topics covered during the weekend include self-awareness, human sexuality, communication, decision making, family planning, vocation, sacrament, unity and more. The weekend is open to any engaged couple wanting to prepare for a deeper, more meaningful life together in a marriage recognized by the Catholic Church according to its Church law.

About the Organization

CEE is an organization comprised totally of volunteers and has grown since its founding in 1975 from a few dozen couples and priests in just a few dioceses to several thousand working within the ministry to the pre-married. Catholic Engaged Encounter has moved from just several dioceses to almost all major dioceses within the United States.
