Are you ready for a personal encounter with Christ?  Have you been thinking about going on a Cursillo weekend but the time just has not been right?  NOW is the time to sign up for the Fall Men and Women’s weekends held on September 15 – 18 and September 22 – 25, 2016 respectively.  Only 32 participants from Central Indiana can attend on each weekend.   So now is the time to sign up. The applications and information about the weekends can be found on www.cursillo-cicc.org.  You may also call Ann Stankiewicz at 578-0886 for more information.  There are only a few weeks left to apply, so please do it today!!!

What is Cursillo?

The Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. Correctly applied, the Cursillo Movement can have very positive results in the spiritual revitalization of the world. The Christian likeness in a few good people is contagious.

Cursillo (pronounced kur-see-yo) is a Spanish word meaning "little" or "short course." It begins on a Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday night. During those three days, those attending live and work together listening to talks given by priests and laity. They also share the Eucharist and pray together.

The titles of the weekend talks indicate their content: Ideal, Grace, Laity, Faith, Holiness, Formation, the Sacraments, Evangelization, Obstacles to a life of Grace, Leaders, Evangelization of the Environment, Christian Life, Christian Community, and Group Reunion. Each talk is followed by a discussion period.

The "after activity" of the Cursillo is known as the Fourth Day. During this time, perseverance is important just as it is in any method of renewal. In the Cursillo Movement, the community spirit is continued after the three days through the "ultreya" or reunions of the community. These are available monthly as a means of growth in understanding and zeal within the Christian community. Reunions of smaller groups of friends are also available in order for them to encourage one another in spiritual improvement and the Christian apostolate.

A Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. That sounds too simple, but it's not. Think about it. A real meeting with Christ. If that is understood, then the power, beauty, and joy of the Cursillo Movement will be understood.
