SCHOOL OF LEADERS

In 2020, School of Leaders introduced monthly presentations and discussions.  Using the new Step by Step documents from National Cursillo, we started by discussing modifications to the weekends, for example, contacting candidates prior to the weekend and the emphasis of corridor work throughout the weekend.   In October we began a series of presentations and discussions based on the fifteen rollos starting with Ideal, followed by Habitual Grace in November.  Rollo presentations will continue in 2021 and into 2022.

Below is the schedule of presentations for 2021.

January 12………………………………….. Layperson:  Christian in the World

February 9………………………………………………………………… Actual Grace

March 9…………………………………………… The Sponsor and Precursillo

April 13……………………………………………………………………………….. Piety

To observe the diocesan guidelines for COVID-19, we are meeting via ZOOM until further notice.  Meeting information is sent by email four or five days prior to the meeting.  Everyone is invited to join and if you are interested in presenting one of the topics, please let me know– it’s a great way to learn more about the Cursillo Weekend.

Peace, love, and joy,
