Avanti / CEC

8:30am-11:30am
Location: Delaney Hall
Description: Held on the 1st Saturday of the month(except December)

The community spirit of the CEC weekend is continued through group reunion, witness, reflection on the witness, shared prayer and fellowship. Avanti is a reunion of the larger 4th Day community of CEC, explained below.

Christians Encounter Christ (CEC) is a Catholic movement within the Archdiocese of Omaha. The Christians Encounter Christ Movement believes that Christianity can penetrate all areas of the secular world, living, growing and transferring Christ's values to society. The CEC Method is introduced in a highly structured three-day "weekend'' experience, beginning on Friday evening and ending on Sunday night. It is a combined effort of laity and clergy toward evangelization of the world in which we live, by strengthened spirituality, lived and shared in everyday environments. When the weekend concludes, one begins their 4th Day.
CEC develops in adult Christians an awareness of their power and mission to become leaders in the work of evangelization, and provides support to sustain them as they persevere in their work as Christian leaven in family, civic, social and economic life. This support is provided through their ongoing participation in the 4th day reunions. In a Group Reunion, 4-5 people meet weekly to reflect, pray and encourage each other in their discipleship.
The weekends are held in Omaha twice a year, generally in March and October.
