• What is a Cursillo Weekend?
  • Many who have attended Cursillo Weekends have found them to be an inspiring experience, offering renewal and impetus in deepening their Christian commitment and faith within their own parishes.
    •          The Weekend begins on a Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday afternoon
    •          During these three days those attending live, work and worship together listening to talks given by different people, both lay and ordained, and they share in various social activities.
    •          Talks are heard on subjects like Grace, Faith, Study, Sacraments, Ideals, Evangelism, Christian Community in Action. There are 15 talks in all.
    •          The talks usually lead to lively follow-up in small groups.
    •          In addition, there is Holy Communion each day and a number of chapel meditations.
    •          The Weekend has plenty of learning, praying, sharing, singing, laughing and living together, and this forms the basis for discovering what it means to say "We are the body of Christ".
    • What is expected of me?
  • There is no specific response expected of you.
  • Just be open to what happens.
  • Simply take a fresh look at what the Church has always taught - Good News - the miraculous and joyous discovery of Christ's endless love.

    • Is that really all?
    • Yes! There are no tricks, no gimmicks, no hidden mysteries only revealed to the initiated. If there are any surprises, that's only because the Christian life is full of surprises. You aren't expected to know or do more, just reflect on being more!

  • How do I get on a weekend?
  • You need to be sponsored by a Cursillista (someone who has attended a weekend. If you do not have a sponsor, speak to a member of the secretariat and they will sort this out for you. Also tell your parish priest!
