The Diocese welcomed the Cursillo Movement in 1985, and since then over 1,000 men and women throughout the region have enjoyed a deepening of their own faith and an enriching experience of Christian community through their involvement in Cursillo.
The Perth Secretariat had held Cursillos in Bunbury, so helped us with resources. The D.L.D. managed to go to Canberra for a National in Feb. 2005 and then to Hobart in September 2005. This helped tremendously with the starting Cursillo in Bunbury.
Cursillo has injected new life and energy, and helped lay people grow, to deepen their faith and to reach out and share the joy and love of God with others. We are pleased to commend Cursillo and encourage you to consider going to a Cursillo weekend.
Cursillo has been in Perth since 1992 with a team from Brisbane. In one month, they ran four 3-day Cursillo's at the Wollaston Centre for Christian Spirituality. Nearly 2500 people from over 120 parishes in Western Australia have been on Cursillo.
Cursillo is a structured weekend, with selected talks and discussions, together with prayer, laughter, music and song, times of reflection and silence. It is a time for listening and sharing ideas presented by fellow Christians, who share the same sort of struggles.
Cursillo is an active participant in the Diocese and it is our prayer that all who have engaged with Cursillo will also become more confident, joyful and enthusiastic supporters of the work of their local Parish. It has prospered in Tasmania.
