- Cursillo School of Leaders
Join the Cursillo School of Leaders in November for friendship, prayer and inspiring talks – ALL CURSILLISTAS ARE WELCOME!
WHEN: Saturday, November 5th, 9:30 a.m. – noon
WHERE: Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 8710 Mount Vernon Hwy., Alexandria, VA 22309
ROOM: Creedon Hall 4 – When you enter the building, Creedon Hall 4 is immediately in front of you. (Cursillo 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. Cathy Lemley will give a technical talk entitled, “Leaders in Cursillo – That Means YOU!” We are all asked to be leaders in Cursillo as we spread the Good News for the Kingdom of God. What are the qualities of a good leader in Cursillo, what are our responsibilities and who are some good role models? Bring your own ideas to share!
10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Group Reunion
11:10 a.m. – 11:50 a.m. Father Tuck Grinnell, spiritual director for Arlington Cursillo, will lead a conversation on Pope Francis’ encyclical ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME (Laudato Si). We will use a couple of paragraphs from the encyclical to get the conversation started.
The rush of the holidays will be upon us soon enough! Let’s take a few hours now 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!
