The Spiritual Life Center is a retreat center and a place of pastoral formation. It exists to serve the People of God of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita. Guided by the vision of the Bishop, the Center has been given the mission to develop programs for Adult Education, Spiritual Formation, and Lay Leadership. It is also home for various diocesan programs. Those who staff the Center work as a team, respecting the gifts of one another, collaborating with one another, and honoring all who come their way as they would Christ Himself.
The TEC family gathers for 3 days each year so that our call to encounter Christ may deepen. Everyone who is interested in bettering their TEC community is invited to participate. At TEC Encounter you will find:
- A deeper sense of community
- Networking opportunities with other members of the TEC family
- A greater knowledge of TEC’s spiritual processes
- An opportunity to gather and share resources
- Personal spiritual renewal
