Thanks for sharing!  I’m really glad you had such a great experience.  I’m terrified of going, I have no idea why.  LOL

Thank you so much for sharing! Everything I read makes me think we should give the extra time & money for the EE weekend, rather than the regular local Pre-Cana.

OMG I know exactly what building you are talking about. I stayed there for retreat once and SO CREEPY (in an awesome way) at night, huh?

What an awesome experience!  We so wanted to do EE, but there wasn’t one close enough to us.  It sounds like you guys had a great time, though!

YAY!! I’m so happy you had such a good experience 😀

We went to EE too and it was awsome. I was afraid we would be judged, because we are convalidating our vows, and accused of being sinners, etc, etc. But no, not at all! There were actually other couples that were convalidating too 🙂

At the begining I didn’t go with a good attitude, but as the hours passed by I completely changed my mind, this was an encounter with Fiance and God. I was so happy and felt so blessed.

We actually had an in-parrish EE, so we didn’t have to stay the night, but worked there all day. There were many couples who were one catholic and one not. Since it was in a church we had three priests come into our EE, one was completely closedminded and and basically told us that men should be men and women should be in the kitchen (haha), and another two were awsome, loving and open minded.
