Cursillo, a Spanish word meaning ‘short course in Christianity’ is “a movement of the Church, providing a method by which Christians are empowered to grow through prayer, study and action and enabled to share God's love with everyone.” Initially you go on a weekend (Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon). Cursillo is aimed at those of you who already have some knowledge of Christianity and the church and who wish to give some time to refresh and energise your faith. Weekends are held at the beautiful retreat centre of Douai Abbey at Woolhampton, just off the A4 between Reading and Newbury. The next weekend in Oxford Diocese is Oct.30th to Nov.2nd. I’d better admit that I will be part of the team this time … maybe you would prefer to wait until next year (April 16th – 19th)! More information available shortly – but if you are interested in the October weekend please let me know as space is limited. Keith
