Presbyterian Cursillo and Pilgrimage Spiritual Renewal Retreats
My Cursillo Experience (The Cliff Notes)
Cursillo is the best thing I have done in my life. My Cursillo transformed how I view life, my relationship with God and His plan for me. It brought to me, in the most personal way, a true sense of belonging to the family of God that I had been, at best, only faintly aware of previously.
The experience changed my idea of church and what I thought of as worship in a positive and meaningful way.
Cursillo taught me how to draw closer to Jesus. It gave me the knowledge and tools necessary to carry the Great
Commission forth in my life. The one thing that stands out above all others from the weekend is the real powerof prayer, made tangible to me by someone dear and by a general feeling of being uplifted during the Cursillo.
During the weekend, I felt bathed in the Holy Spirit, felt God's special love for me and came to know Jesus as a friend. I made many new friends and have memories I will treasure forever. My fervent prayer is that all those who can make a Cursillo would do so; so that our community would be stronger, our sense of purpose as His disciples renewed and invigorated, and our love for all of God's creation would be as He desires.
