What is Pre-Cursillo?
Pre-Cursillo is the first of three stages of the Cursillo movement. This stage relies primarily on evangelization to achieve its purpose – which is bringing Candidates into the Cursillo. Pre-Cursillo works with Sponsors and potential Candidates by providing education, information, and preparation for a Cursillo Weekend. Applications are forwarded to the Pre-Cursillo chairperson who works with the Spiritual Director to approve Candidates for an upcoming Weekend.
Sponsors can send applications at any time. The Pre-Cursillo chairperson maintains records and rosters and sends information to Sponsors prior to a Weekend. As a member of Secretariat, the Pre-Cursillo chairperson provides updates on Pre-Cursillo activities and status of Candidates prior to a Weekend.
The Pre-Cursillo committee works together to hold workshops to aid Cursillistas with sponsorship guidelines and activities. We are looking to expand our committee membership. If you are interested in joining us, please email Cindy Cessna at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call at 203-913-4037.
