Christian Experience Weekend
Women’s Weekend, February 24-26, 2017
Men’s Weekend, March 10-12, 2017
All men and women, 21 years and older, are invited to attend a Christian Experience Weekend At St. Paul the Apostle School 1007 East Rusholme St. Davenport, IA 52803 The purpose of the Christian Experience Weekend (CEW) is to set apart a time and place from the ordinary events of life during which members of our community can relate to one another in a variety of ways centered around the common theme of strengthening their relationship with God.
The Christian Experience Weekend is a gratifying, adult renewal weekend. It is a shared religious experience, which grew out of the realization that the Christian life has to be experienced before it can be appreciated. Since the Christian life is a community life, it is best experienced in community.
The weekend is intended for any person who is looking for more in life – the “fullness of life” and joy, which Jesus brings to us. It is open to anyone twenty-one years and older. Each weekend is for either women only or men only.
The weekend includes: talks followed by a discussion of their contents in small groups, prayer services, and a special Mass. A team of lay people, priests, deacons and sisters conduct the weekends.
The weekend begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and ends at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Everything is held at St. Paul’s Church and School. Part of the community experience is sleeping in large room arrangements on mats and sleeping bags. Special arrangements are possible, if required. Attendance is limited by the facility.
An application form needs to be filled out and returned in advance of the weekend. The fee for the weekend is $35, which includes wonderful meals. Persons unable to pay are not refused.
