Welcome to Twin Cities TEC!

TEC stands for “Teens Encounter Christ”.  TEC is a three-day retreat weekend based on the Paschal Mystery: the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our TEC Center is located at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in West St. Paul, MN.


“In this fully Catholic experience, youth are able to eliminate distractions, recognize Christ in sacrament and community, and embrace leadership in the Church.”

-Pat Millea, Director of Highschool Faith Formation, St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Prior Lake

The time has come to say good-bye.

After much prayerful discernment and discussion, the Board of Directors has decided that the last retreat for Twin Cities TEC will be TEC 349 – December 27-29, 2014.

If you have ever wanted to attend a TEC retreat but have not done so, now is the time. If you have been considering serving on team for a TEC retreat but have been putting it off, now is the time. If you have served on team many times and look forward to your next opportunity to serve, now is the time. Let’s make this last retreat weekend a great celebration!
