TEC is a three-day retreat weekend based on the Paschal Mystery: the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our TEC Center is located just outside of Little Falls in central Minnesota.For most TEC participants, words can not describe the weekend, the feeling, nor the encounter with Christ, but you can certainly ask any family or friends that have participated on a TEC weekend or for further information or you may visit the CM TEC website here.
