Upcoming Cursillo Weekends

Cursillo, designated by the Vatican as a renewal movement of the Church, has been for many people worldwide, a powerful instrument in effecting a new and deeper awareness of what Christianity means in their lives.  The three-day weekend is not a retreat in the way one thinks of a retreat.  Rather, it provides an experience of a dynamic Christian community where the teachings of Christ are presented and discussed in a spirit of joy and celebration.  The next Cursillo weekends in the Ottawa area are:

Women’s:   October  26  –  29,  2017

Men’s:   November  16  –  19,  2017

Attention Cursillistas:  Do you recall your own Cursillo experience?  This is a reminder to share the gift of your experience by sponsoring a friend.  It is a gesture of love.  There are still spaces on the upcoming weekends.

For information, please contact Kevin & Rosemary Burke at 613-228-1958 .
