Welcome

Welcome to the website for Oregon and SW Washington Episcopal Cursillo Ministry. We are a group of Episcopalians eager to deepen the faith and encourage the ministry of both laity and clergy across our Dioceses. Cursillo is one method for promoting vital, dynamic faith, a vibrant sense of Christian community, and the ongoing development of lay leadership. Cursillo involves two main components:
  • a 3-day weekend filled with 15 talks, group discussions, activities, worship, singing, and fun
    • Our next Cursillo Weekend for ALL adults will be from Thursday evening, May 31 to Sunday afternoon, June 3,  2018 at Oregon Christian Convention Center in Turner, just outside Salem.  A wonderful facility, with beds and showers
    • Jane Hershberger will be Rectora for the Weekend.  
  • AND the Fourth Day, which represents how we live out the Christian life in support of one another.
    • We had a great Grand Ultreya, with about 50 people attending, at Church of the Good Shepherd in Vancouver on Sunday, September 17, 2017.  Many there had been away from Cursillo for a few years, but found the same Spirit alive and well.  
There are a lot of Spanish terms like Ultreya and De Colores that you may see throughout these pages; for more info on what these terms mean and about Cursillo and its history, go to What is Cursillo? The secretariat is the governing body of the movement for the local Cursillo community.
Cursillo is a volunteer organization that relies on the hard work of YOU!
