  • Community of Young Adults

  • Cursillo

    Cursillo (pronounced Cur-SEE'yo) is a movement of the church. Its purpose is to help those in the church understand their individual callings to be Christian Leaders. The Cursillo weekend brings together a diverse group of Episcopalians to share the richness of many modes of worship and to broaden each one’s appreciation for our Church. Lay people conduct the weekend with two or three members of the clergy functioning as spiritual advisors. Cursillo presumes that those who attend are already well grounded in the faith. It often provides new insights into our faith as well as fostering ministry among lay people. There are 5 Cursillo weekends a year and they are all held at Camp McDowell.
