Cursillo retreat registration deadline approaches

The Cursillo Movement of the Diocese of Jackson strives to empower its members to become leaders in the work of Christian renewal and to encourage and sustain them in the daily life of Christian discipleship.  To that end, a Cursillo retreat is being offered at the Duncan Gray Conference Center in Canton Oct. 24-26.
The retreat is open to all who have made a Cursillo weekend and their spouses. Singles and couples are welcome. It will begin Friday  with registration at 6 p.m. and conclude Sunday at 2 p.m.100314cursillo
This inspiring two-day retreat will have a more relaxed atmosphere than the three-day Cursillo weekend with plenty of time for reflection, sharing and question and answer sessions. The group will have Ultreya Saturday evening.
This will be an opportunity to strengthen and renew friendships, make new friends and learn from each other’s Fourth Day experiences in discipleship and leadership, particularly regarding the three encounters – with self, Christ and others.
Make the decision today to attend the retreat and allow the charism of Cursillo to form you, inform you and transform you. Christ is still counting on you! DeColores!
The cost is $175 per person in a double occupancy or $200 for a single room.
To secure a slot, submit a completed registration form along with a $75 deposit made payable to Cursillo Movement to Sue Anne Booth, Catholic Diocese of Jackson, P.O. Box 2248, Jackson, MS  39225-2248.
Scholarships are available. The deadline for registration is Friday, Oct. 17. To request a registration form send an e-mail to or call Jerry Perez, 601-968-7766.
