What is a REC?

Residents Encounter Christ is a two-day, retreat weekend, based on the Paschal Mystery – the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Participants experience the message of Christ through participation in music, discussions, talks, prayer, Scripture, liturgy and celebration.

Each of the three parts of the retreat has a central theme:

  • “Die Day” – centered on the death of Jesus Christ.
  • “Rise Day” – a joyous celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • “Go Day” – explores the continuous call to spread the Good News.


Retreat team positions are open to adults who have the love of Christ in them and want to share it. A prior participation in TEC, Koininia, or Cursillo is strongly suggested.

The team is predominantly staffed by Catholics, however non-Catholics are warmly welcomed.
