Cursillo Fall Weekend Schedules Announced

Growing Your Faith: Fall Cursillo Weekends
Men’s Retreat Weekend: October 3 – 6, 2019
Women’s Retreat Weekend: October 17 – 20, 2019
A great opportunity to deepen your relationship with Jesus happens this Fall. Consider going on a Cursillo weekend.
Described as a short course on Christianity, Cursillo combines prayer, learnings, heartfelt talks, good food, and fun. You’ll meet people just like you who desire a stronger Catholic-Christian Faith. Leaders and speakers have a passion for the Faith.
A Cursillo weekend runs from Thursday after dinner through Sunday afternoon. Let a friend know about this opportunity and encourage your spouse, too. If you haven’t attended a Cursillo, decide to go this Fall. If you have attended a Cursillo, invite a friend. For more information, Contact Team Member Sam Nickolas at 408-666-0410.

According to the Organization’s webpage, “The Cursillo Movement started when a group of priests and laymen in Majorca, Spain examined the condition of the Church and felt that something had to be done to assist it. From 1943 to 1947 they formulated a “method” to help renew the Church. They called it a “short course” or “short experience” in the basic teachings of Jesus, as lived with other Christians. They also developed an ongoing program for after the three-days, so that the initial enthusiasm would continue.

Cursillo was deemed an official Movement of the Catholic Church in the early sixties and was introduced into the Bay Area in 1961. It is approved by the Bishop.”
