Cursillo Comes Back Strong

The short course in Christianity known as Cursillo made its come back this past weekend after a respite for prayerful discernment and retooling. This was a back to basics approach. The goal of the Cursillo Commission was to return to the authentic Cursillo weekend with fewer add ons that had developed over time.

The Rev. Kit Brinson, who served as one of two Spiritual Directors for the weekend said, “Having taken a few years off, we were not sure what to expect.  The Holy Spirit showed up and showed God’s love to so many folks.”

Changes to the weekend included work on the music, move to family style dining at lunch and supper, changes to the schedule and more. The priority was an emphasis on what has always been the most important goal of Cursillo, creating small groups to continue to meet, sharing each others’ faith journeys week by week. The Rev. Richard Nelson, who also served as Spiritual Director said, “What a joy to be part of the renewed Cursillo weekends and 4th Day ministries in the Diocese of Georgia.  Now it’s onward (Ultreya!) as we continue to serve God, the Church and the world through living the Cursillo method in the 4th Day.”

Cursillo Rector Allison Clarkson said she wanted the weekend to be meaningful for all of our participants, then added, “I can’t be happier. I didn’t want it to be over.”
