“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth. O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same. Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations”
CATHOLIC CURSILLO MOVEMENT
The Grouard-McLennan Cursillo Movement has been operating since 1979 in the Grande Prairie area, Canada. Our purpose is the same as that of the Cursillo - Make a Friend, Be a Friend, Bring a Friend to Christ. We are dedicated to expanding the Kingdom of Christ through evangelizing environments using this Cursillo method. We hold Cursillo weekends in the spring and fall of every year, separate weekends for men and women.
The goal of a Cursillo weekend is that each candidate and team member be renewed in their faith and continue their faith journey after the weekend by being part of a smaller Christian Community that meets weekly. The Cursillo has a method for this called Group Reunion, but other methods are also viable (like Bible Study groups, Prayer groups, etc). We also hold monthly gatherings of those who have made a Cursillo (or would like to) called Ultreya.
Share a profound experience of Christian life, and presence and love of Jesus Christ. Our Cursillo weekend represents the first, essential step along the way.
Share with one another the growth that has taken place within you, to deepen your friendship, and provide the continual support we need in order to persevere as a part of God’s plan.
Ultreya signifies “onward” or “proceed further on”. It is the time for the members of the Group Reunions to meet with members of other Group Reunions. Providing each other support and encouragement
