Helpful Hints & Best Practices

LET'S GET BACK TO BASICS

  • 15 Talks, 5 Meditations, and Worship every day is the core of a Cursillo weekend

  • Your weekend was great but its not here anymore.  All you have to sustain your growth in Christ is The 4Th day

  • Without living into the 4th day our cursillo weekend becomes a distant memory of a weekend spent away with other believers. 

  • Living the 4th Day Path events and Back to the mountain reemphasize to new pilgrims the importance of the 4th day

  • We have spent some time condensing and simplifying our Cursillo Library
