Summer Retreat 2025

It is both a great joy and terrific challenge to serve as Rectora of the next Cursillo Weekend, June 19-22, 2025 at Todd Hall in Columbia, Illinois. As I gather our team for meetings and planning activities I reflect on all the wonderful experiences I’ve enjoyed through Cursillo.

However, the most important result of a Cursillo Weekend is to add tremendous dimension to my faith in God and come to learn more about Jesus and the abundant love He has for each of His people.

Please consider this invitation to join us for three days. It’s an investment in your future and a chance to help fulfill God’s intention for His world. What could be more important than a life closer to Jesus? How wonderful it is to have more words to share my faith in Him.

“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”  -John 15:9-12

Blessings, Carol McCrary, Rectora – Cursillo #40, June 19-22, 2025

What is Cursillo?

Cursillo is an opportunity to grow in our Christian faith. Its goal is to equip Christians to lead a Christ-centered life and help spread the good news. This layperson-led ministry includes talks, quiet reflection, song, group activities, worship, fun and fellowship! Additionally, there will be opportunities for spiritual counseling with clergy. Cursillo is a time for learning and rejoicing and going out to reflect to others that joy to encourage them in the way, and we hope you will join us!
