Upcoming Cursillo Weekends

2019 Dates: April 25-28 / June 13-16 / September 12-15 / October 24-27

What is Cursillo?

An amazing opportunity to worship, relax, laugh and pray at Camp McDowell. You'll have the opportunity to grow in your faith and in spirituality; have a deeper understanding of the teachings of Jesus and how we can serve Him; have an experience of living and sharing with others in a loving and caring Christian community; and have continuing community that gives support and encouragement empowering the renewed Christians to persevere in carrying out their Baptismal vows.

Cursillo includes a three–day weekend that begins on Thursday evening and concludes on Sunday. During these three days, talks are given by lay persons and clergy who have spent time working together carefully planning and preparing for the Weekend.

Cursillo is a lay-led ministry and receives no funding from the diocese. We rely on charitable donations to meet the expenses of our Cursillo weekends. As a pilgrim, there is no charge; your weekend is a gift from the community.

How do I sign up?

Every participant has a sponsor, who has attended a Cursillo weekend. This sponsor will assist you in preparation for the weekend and, more importantly, assist you after the weekend. If you know someone in our parish who has attended a Cursillo weekend, ask them to tell you more and how to get started, and let your priest know about your interest. Pray about it, and if you conclude that you should go, submit an application that your sponsor will provide.
