CURSILLO
The Cursillo Movement prepares laity to be truly evangelistic in their work situations, their family and social lives, in leisure activities or within the institutional church. The movement guides Christians to a deeper relationship with God and helps them understand their individual callings to be Christian leaders. Dedication to continued prayer, study and apostolic action are taught so these leaders can more effectively do the work of evangelism. Weekends are held at Camp Allen.
