Have You Started Your Cursillo?

The Cursillo method takes a Christian beyond a passive belief in God to a daily interaction with God and His people, helping one to become more committed in Christ. A Cursillo weekend is not simply a retreat, but rather the beginning of a person’s life-long growth as a Christian.   If you are interested in deepening your faith and growing in Christian community, Cursillo may be just what you’re looking for. The Cursillo Journey begins with a three-day weekend experience which invites Catholics to dive deeper into the well of our faith and personally connect with God’s unlimited love.  The Atlanta Archdiocese Cursillo weekends will be held at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers.  Weekends begin Thursday evening and conclude Sunday afternoon. (Men, Feb. 27 - Mar. 1: Women, Mar. 5 – Mar. 8). If you are interested in attending a Cursillo Weekend, please contact Anthony and Kimi Nettuno (406-579-9535, [email protected]) or Mark Bopp (404-423-6290, [email protected]), or visit:
