Cursillo

Chair Person Gloria Gurwell

Cursillo (pronounced ker-SEE-oh) is a three-day learning, sharing inspirational experience of living in a Christian community. The word is Spanish, and is an abbreviation for “A Short Course in Christian Community Living.” During the three-day weekend retreat, a person hears inspiring talks on what it means to be a Christian, and experiences the joy of building and being part of a Christian community. After a Cursillo weekend, the participant is encouraged through The Cursillo Group Reunion to share their enthusiastic faith in Jesus Christ in the areas of prayer, study and action. They will meet in small groups and/or attend regular meetings as a group. 
Due to construction, a tentative meeting is scheduled sometime in December 2016.
