What is Catholic Engaged Encounter of Cleveland (CEE)?

Catholic Engaged Encounter (CEE) of Cleveland is a community of married couples who volunteer their time, providing Encounter weekends to engaged couples. The Weekend Encounter is guided by the National Engaged Encounter ministry, which is endorsed by the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland Office of Marriage and Family.

Who are the people of Catholic Engaged Encounter of Cleveland?

The CEE Community consists of volunteering married couples from the local area that cherishes marriage as a sacred covenant. They believe in serving marriage as a lifetime commitment by administering weekends to engaged couples. The individuals of community include all ages and lengths of marriage. It is as important to have newlyweds as well as those that have many years of experience to share.

What can I do to be a part of Catholic Engaged Encounter of Cleveland?

There are many acts of service needed to make a CEE weekend possible. Our ministry of service and encouragement are called “JOYS”. “Joys” can be selected based on the level of involvement your desire. Depending on the “Joy”, it may be the responsibility of one or more couples. A list of “Joys” follows. A detailed printable version of our volunteer opportunities can be found HERE.
