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 held Thursday evening, April 4 to Sunday afternoon, April 7,  2019, again at the Oregon Christian Convention Center in Turner, just outside Salem.   
  • AND the Fourth Day, which represents how we live out the Christian life in support of one another.
    • Our NEXT Ultreya Gathering is Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 2pm, and will welcome all Cursillo folk and friends from Oregon and SW Washington
    • Held at Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit
    • 120 S. Umatilla St.
    • Sutherlin, OR   97479
    • Bring a friend, your name tag, and a snack to share. 
    • We will pray, sing, share, learn, and, of course, eat.
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.
