Pre-Cursillo

The Pre-Cursillo committee processes applications for Cursillo Weekends, keeps the team informed about the candidate applications, and supports sponsors by helping them understand their role and connecting them to information.

During this period, sponsors(i.e. those individuals that have been to the three-day Cursillo weekend and are living the Fourth Day, identify those Catholics who are leading an active Christian life and are a living witness to their love for Christ, recommending their candidacy. It is also the period that selected candidates are informed of what to expect at the three-day weekend and are assisted in appropriate preparations.
