Beyond the Weekend - the 4th Day

Cursillo is more than just the "3 Day" Weekend.  In fact the real journey starts after the 3 Days, in your "4th Day", which is the rest of your life.  Do you want to keep alive the spirit, joy, and fervor of your weekend.  Then commit to living out the Piety-Study-Action tripod of your Service and Group Reunion sheets - this is the Cursillo Method, this is how we persevere!  Use the information and links on this page to access some tools to assist you in continuing on your faith pilgrimage.

TO BE ON A PILGRIMAGE

 

To be on a Pilrimage

is to journey

through Christ to the

Father under the guidance

of the Holy Spirit, with

the help of Mary and all

of the saints as you

bring your brothers and sisters

along with you.




COME HOLY SPIRIT

 

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts

of us Your faithful and kindle in us

the fire of Your Love.  And You

shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray.

O God, who by the light of the

 Holy Spirit instructs the hearts

of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be

truly wise and ever rejoice

 in His consolations.

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
