The Three Day Cursillo Weekend is a very special time of encountering Jesus Christ in a community of love; however, Cursillo is not just a weekend. The post-Cursillo is your Fourth Day journey after the three-day Cursillo Weekend. After the weekend you enter your “Fourth Day” which lasts for the rest of your life.
As you continue in the life of grace and seek ways to be an effective apostle for Christ among the people you know, you will be supported by some of the key thoughts expressed during the Three-Day weekend and by other Cursillistas.
You will be invited to join a Grouping (or group reunion), a small group of people who meet on a regular basis (weekly or biweekly) to pray together, to share their joys and sorrows, and to support each other as active Christians in their own environments. Groupings are held frequently when several people gather together for mutual encouragement and support through PRAYER, STUDY, and ACTION.
You will be invited to Ultreyas, larger regional or Diocesan gatherings, where Cursillistas join in worship and sharing their lives and the love of God. Ultreyas are meetings of larger groups of people who have either participated in a Cursillo weekend or who might be interested in doing so. Here, Cursillastas share and witness to others so that their own faith and community can be built up.
School of Leaders
The School of Leaders provides a place for continuing growth and understanding of the Church, the Cursillo Movement and the environments in which we find ourselves. Members of the Secretariat are drawn from and supported by the School of Leaders.
Spiritual Direction is an important element of the Cursillo Movement. It is a commitment to seek out a skilled lay or clergy person to provide help as you seek to deepen your relationship with Christ.
Serve in upcoming Cursillo Weekends
God has a purpose for every life and for every “Fourth Day” cursillista; a purpose he is working to accomplish in you and through you to others. The continuing support and love that is offered by members of your Group Reunion and by other Cursillistas is there to help you achieve God’s purpose.
You are invited to join us at School of Leaders for more information to serve in Cursillo Weekends and to develop a deeper knowledge of God and his love for us by sharing our experience with new candidates. Learn how you can share your talents by volunteering with Cincinnati Cursillo.
