Men's Cursillo Weekend - October 17 - 20, 2019

Registration Open Until October 1, 2019!

Cursillo  is a Spanish word meaning "little course."  It refers to a short course in Christian living.  The Cursillo Movement is made up of individuals who have participated in similar short courses by attending a weekend and endeavor to apply Christian principles in their daily lives.

Cursillo Weekends are offered twice annually; once for women, the other for men.

The purpose of these weekends is to help practicing Christians:

  • Renew and strengthen their love of Jesus
  • Grow in Faith, knowledge and personal holiness.
  • Bring Christian Values to all environments and people with whom they come into contact and make those values the pattern for their own lives.

Want More Information?

More information about Cursillo and Application Forms for the Men's Weekend are  available at the Valley Cursillo website.
