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 great talks, group discussions, activities, worship, singing, and fun
      • Our next Cursillo Weekend for ALL adults had to be POSTPONED due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  New dates will be announced.
      • First all team meeting was on Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 9am till noon at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, 8818 SW Miley Road, Wilsonville, 97070.  Team meetings cancelled for 2020 weekend.
  • AND the Fourth Day, which represents how we live out the Christian life in support of one another.
      • Our last Ultreya Gathering was Saturday, November 9, 2019 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Salem, 1444 Liberty Street SE, Salem, 97302.  
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.
