The week-end starts on a Thursday night and ends on Sunday night. During these three days, we learn :
This Cursillo weekend represents the first, essential step along the way. The key is what happens after the weekend during the postcursillo period known as the 4th day.
The Cursillo Movement (CM) recognizes that the revelations and the enthusiasm of the weekend need to be nurtured and deepened so that the individual and the community gain maximum benefit. It is for these reasons that the CM proposes two types of regular meetings: the Group Reunion (3 to 6 people who meet regularly to help to give time to prayer, study and action) and a larger gathering called Ultreya (Spanish word which means "to go further")
The Cursillo Movement (CM) is an apostolic movement. Its goal is to share with the community the essence of Christianity and Christian values and in this way gradually transform the community from within. To convey its objective, the CM uses the expression "leavening society with the gospel" and it is counting primarily on the testimony of friendship and the deepening of the personal conversion of its members.
"Here is your role in the Church : to create clusters of believers who will carry the message of salvation everywhere, showing the seriousness of your opinion not by imposing it, but by a strong testimony". (Pope John Paul II)
