Cursillo / Ultreya – Cursillo is a three day weekend retreat. It is one of the original renewal movements in the Catholic Church that started in the 1940s. Consider it a short course in Christianity that focuses on prayer, study and apostolic action. It can ignite your love of Christ and introduce you to a lifelong support community. The Atlanta weekends are held twice a year at the Holy Spirit Monastery in Conyers. Those who have made a weekend often gather together for an Ultreya (gathering of Cursillistas) to keep the weekend message alive. Saint Brigid is a member of the Northside Ultreya which meets on the 4th Saturday of the month in different parishes in our area including ours. It usually follows the vigil Mass with a pot luck supper and then a witness or sharing. Cursillo is a lay movement of the Catholic Church that has helped thousands of Catholics renew their faith and lead them to become true disciples building God’s kingdom on earth. Call or email us if you want to make a weekend or just want to talk about the movement.
