Powerful Cursillo Weekend

34 women from across the Bathurst Diocese took part in a Spirit-filled Cursillo weekend at Ridgecrest, near Wellington, recently.

With Father Greg Kennedy as Spiritual Director and a team of 11 prayerful women, the weekend unfolded as a powerful encounter with our risen Lord, Jesus Christ.

The unique gift of the Cursillo is that faith flows and grows through friendship. Women come together for a weekend of living in Christian community. Through the prayers and sacrifices of the local and world-wide praying Cursillo community, each person is touched, blessed, and perhaps challenged, by the Holy Spirit.

‘Cursillistas’ are then encouraged to maintain and develop these friendships - to help each other in their Christian journey, meeting together to share and support one another in prayer.

If you would like a Cursillo experience, keep the dates, July 24th- 27th 2014 free in your diary. Deb Scoins of Orange will be directing the 2014 Cursillo for women at Ridgecrest, with Father Martin O'Mahony the Spiritual Director. Watch your Parish newsletter for more information, or ring Deb on 6360 0682.
