When is the next Cursillo weekend in our Diocese?


The next Cursillo weekend is a Spanish Cursillo May 17 – 20, 2018 at Day Spring.

What is Cursillo (pronounced Cur-See-yo)?

  • It is a short course in Christian living.
  • It is an opportunity for you to grow in faith and spirituality.
  • It provides an opportunity for you to gain a deeper understanding of the teachings of Jesus and how we can serve Him.
  • It is an experience of living in a loving and caring Christian community.
