WELCOME!


Through this website, the Secretariat and the School of Leaders will bring you up to date on the latest information on the Cursillo Movement in Maine.  Tens of thousands of Catholics throughout the world have lived a Cursillo weekend.


The Name “Cursillo” is Spanish, meaning the “Short Course” – a short course in Catholic Christianity for adults who want to learn more about their faith.  During these three days, those attending will listen to talks given be clergy and other laity, meet new friends, and have the opportunity to receive Grace.


Over the weekend, participants will share the Eucharist, experience the Sacraments, learn to pray and to laugh together as a community.  The Cursillo begins on Thursday evening with check-in between 6:30 and 7pm, and will end around 7pm  on Sunday evening.


Maine Cursillo takes place at Camp Mechuwana in Winthrop, ME.






Christ  is counting on us to share His love and His mercy with family and friends!  

Psalm 126 shows us how to do this - through living out our Joy in loving Brother Jesus.

  

“Then it will be said among (others),

The LORD has done great things for them”.  


They are attracted to our Joy and we share our experience of Cursillo.
