What is Cursillo?


Cursillo is a lay Christian movement in which its members try and live their Christianity in the

environments they find themselves, and by their witness influence others and act as a Christian force in their homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces. The focus is on the person of Jesus and the movement is Catholic.


Can Cursillo make a difference?


In today’s world can Christianity penetrate the many areas of secular life? Can it live there? Can it grow there? Can it transform the world in a way that is more fruitful than the past and in keeping with the times? The Cursillo Movement thinks so.


It proposes no new type of spirituality, but simply a method through which one’s personal spirituality may be developed, lived and shared in any area of human life – where there are Christians willing to dedicate their lives to God in an ongoing manner.


The method is introduced by a short course - Cursillo.


The joyful proclamation of being a Christian!

===============

  Earlier this month we received a letter from Camp Metchuwana informing us that our cancellations of weekends was posing serious problems to them relative to their budget and finances.  They need every weekend event they can get to cover expenses.  

This prompted the Secretariat to review what we felt was reasonable to hold for weekends.  After much prayer and discussion, we reluctantly decided we could realistically only expect to fulfill one men’s weekend and one women's weekend for this year.

Make a Friend, Be a Friend, Bring that Friend to Christ!  "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love,  and self discipline." 2 Tim 1:7
