Three to stay married


The 2017 CEE Convention will bring couples from throughout District 2 together for what we like to think of as a "Family Reunion." Meet all the people in our district who are doing the same important work as you! Swap stories, share advice, or just talk about life. There will be a dynamic speaker, small group discussions, family time, delicious food and best of all, good company.

"It takes three to make love, not two: you, your spouse, and God. Without God people only succeed in bringing out the worst in one another. Lovers who have nothing else to do but love each other soon find there is nothing else. Without a central loyalty life is unfinished."
— Three to Get Married, Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
