The Group Reunion is a small group (3 to 6) of Cursillo friends that meet on a regular basis. The purpose of this meeting is to share with one another the growth that has taken place within each of them,
to deepen their friendship,
t o help one another to live according to the Gospel and
to bring a Christ-like attitude to their environments.
This meeting of friends are at the core of the Cursillo Movement. From the very beginning the founders of the CM perceived in the Group Reunion the means "to create and sustain small nuclei (groups) of Christians who act as leaven for the Gospel in their environments".
As we make attempts to bring Christ into our various environments, we will sometimes become frustrated. The Group Reunion provides the continual support we need in order to persevere as a part of God’s plan.
To help spread the Kingdom, there is nothing which can compare to the sharing of God's graces among friends.
In a Group Reunion, we learn:
- to share our spiritual life: (holiness)
- to grow in the knowledge of Christ (formation)
- and to prepare various methods of passing on to others what we have learned (evangelization)
Note: If that kind of meeting does not exist yet as a formal structure in your diocese, do not wait for others to put it up; it is highly recommended that friends chose freely to meet together to extend their cursillo experience.
