CursilloThe Eastern Oregon Cursillo Community is lay-led, a part of the Diocese of Eastern Oregon that was founded to meet the growing spiritual needs of all people of all Christian denominations in the Diocese. It is part of a world-wide community which began with the Roman Catholic Cursillo movement.

Its purpose is to help those in the church understand their individual callings to be Christian Leaders.

This site is intended to share information about the Cursillo Movement in the Diocese of Eastern Oregon. Here you will find general information about Cursillo and the Diocese of Eastern Oregon, as well as details of upcoming Cursillo weekends, including information about sponsorship and registration.

 Theme: It is only with the heart that one can see clearly; what is true is invisible to the eye.

The Core Team for Cursillo 47 asks that you prayerfully consider working on the team for the upcoming weekend. We are already putting individual teams together, and we would love to have you join us! Think about it, pray about it, and if you feel it’s the right time, please send in your application as soon as possible. Be prayerful as to where you would like to work (remembering that God may have other plans for where he needs you), if you can stay the whole weekend (we need the whole team – for the whole weekend), and if you can attend both of the team meetings.
