Mission and Outreach: Invite your friends to Cursillo
Cursillo 324 is scheduled for October 13-16 at Camp Crucis, 2875 Camp Crucis Ct. in Granbury, Texas, 76048.
Cursillo is a movement of the Church. The Cursillo weekend is a time for renewal, refreshment, and recommitment to living for Christ. Through talks given by both lay and clergy, small group discussions, worship and the sacraments, participants on the weekend come away with the tools to help them lead a more Christ-centered life. As a result, they become more effective in bringing Christ to others and others closer to Christ to grow the Kingdom of God throughout their neighborhood and the wold -- the duty of all Christians. These tools are maintained and sharpened through the 4th Day activities of Group Reunions, Ultreya and Spiritual Direction.
The Cursillo Weekend is a time to focus on what is fundamental for being a Christian and to learn the Cursillo method. It is the springboard to living the Fourth Day. The three-day weekend brings together a group of Episcopalians and Anglicans to share the richness of worship and to broaden each one’s appreciation for the Church. Lay people conduct the weekend with two or three members of the clergy functioning as spiritual advisors. In the course of the weekend, a series of 15 talks are given with emphasis on the doctrine of Grace, the Sacraments, and the Cursillo Foundations: Piety, Study and Action. Table groups discuss and respond to these talks. The Eucharist is celebrated daily, and the Daily Offices are used. Some time is provided for prayer, confession, and spiritual direction. There is also fellowship, singing, good food, time for privacy, meditation and prayer.
The cost is $200 for the weekend, financial assistant is available. Go to www.dfwcursillo.org to sign up.
