rooster_smallWhat is Cursillo?

An opportunity to grow in faith and in spirituality.

A way to a deeper understanding of the teachings of Jesus and how we can serve Him.

An experience of living and sharing with others in a loving and caring Christian community and realizing that this can be extended into our own environment.

A continuing community that gives support and encouragement empowering the renewed Christians to persevere in carrying out their Baptismal vows.Cursillo includes a three-day weekend which begins on Thursday evening and concludes on Sunday. During these three days, talks are given by lay persons and clergy who have spent time working together carefully planning and preparing for the Weekend. The Cursillo weekend is not a retreat. There is no fasting or extended period of silence. The weekend is an opportunity to meet clergy and laity who are seeking to strengthen their faith.

(And a chance to find out what the deal is with the rooster!)

Be our guest!  Cursillo is a weekend opportunity to grow in faith and spirituality.  It is completely free of charge; a gift to you by the Cursillo community. The weekends take place at beautiful Camp McDowell.

Advent parish lay rector is Gene McCall (205-383-7932), and Canon Deborah Leighton is clergy contact.
