Cursillo Fall Weekends -
Men's 138th (Carmelite Spiritual Center, Darien) - Oct. 24-27, 2019 (Rector: JT Whitehouse)
Women's 130th (Carmelite Spiritual Center, Darien) - Nov. 7-10, 2019 (Rectora: Mary Marten)
The Cursillo movement promotes not only personal spiritual growth, but recognizes that we are called by our baptism to be active apostolic members of the Body of Christ. The goal of the movement is not about “preaching the good news” but to become the good news and in a natural way; our actions will become evangelical in our daily lives.
