Cursillo Ultreya Meetings: second Friday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Join us in the Adult Lounge for more information on upcoming retreat weekends
Men's Cursillo Weekend #143
February 27 - March 1, 2020
Women's Cursillo Weekend #137
March 5 - 8, 2020
The Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. Its mission is to bring Christ to others by learning how to embrace our vocation as laypersons. It promotes a spiritual revitalization of our world. By living a fully Christian life, we bring Christ to others, including members of our family, workplace, school, etc. The Cursillo Movement provides a method and a technique to provide each of us with the tools, the mentality, the strength, and the support to make this natural type of evangelization possible.
The Cursillo weekend is more a workshop than a retreat. It is an opportunity to learn, grow and share in Eucharist prayer, adoration, and personal reflection within the context of a Christian community. The weekend is designed to inspire and encourage the deepening of faith and to develop a consciousness that we are called to be leaders in our environments.
For more information on men's and women's Cursillo weekends go to
