We will have a witness by Father Patrick Conroy, S.J., Chaplain, U.S. House of Representatives. Father Conroy is a Jesuit priest, a lawyer and so much more. A long-time cursillista who made his Cursillo in Montana, Father will share the importance of his Cursillo experience and his Fourth Day journey, as well as talk about his duties as chaplain. Thanks to Phil Kiko for facilitating this witness. Bring substantial food-and-drink to share, as this will be supper for most, and bring your babe chicks and interested friends.

WHERE: St. Ann Roman Catholic Church, 5300 10th Street N., Arlington, VA 22205
ROOM: Parish Hall (signs will be posted)
This is a great opportunity to learn more about Cursillo and grow in your faith by listening to inspiring spiritual talks and socializing with friends (or making new ones). This event is for all Cursillistas as you live out your “Fourth Day.” Come alone, bring a friend, or bring your own Group Reunion. Bring a breakfast goody to share and we’ll provide the coffee and tea!
9:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Welcome, Introductions, Announcements
10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Mary Beth Harney, chairperson for the Pre-Cursillo Committee and frequent team member, will provide an overview of the history of the Cursillo movement. Knowing our roots helps us to better understand and appreciate our present.
10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Group Reunion
11:10 a.m. – 11:50 a.m. Father Chester Michael, a very early Cursillista and founder of the Spiritual Direction Institute. Father Michael believed that this tool was essential to the ministry of spiritual direction. Our personality type is a major factor in determining what prayer styles will work best for each of us. During this talk, you will be introduced to the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and be provided with several handouts to help you determine your personality type and the prayer styles most likely to work best for you.
As we continue through the Lenten season, let’s take a few hours to “rest in the Lord” and enjoy our community, our speakers and grow in our faith. I look forward to seeing you there! De colores!
