CURSILLISTAS – Juan Arevalo (813) 477-0368
The Cursillos of Christianity began in Spain , on the island of Mallorca , in 1944. The founding concept was that lay people, by virtue of the sacraments of baptism and confirmation, perform an active role in evangelization in the world. The Cursillo retreat (conducted over a long weekend) is considered a “short course in Christianity”, and introduces you to how you fit into the church’s mission today.  For many people, this retreat deepens appreciation for our faith, and opens up opportunities to apply and live out our faith in the modern world.
