What to Expect

The Weekend

The Atlanta Archdiocese Catholic Cursillo Weekend is held at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Ga.  It begins Thursday evening at 7:00pm and concludes Sunday evening at 5:00 pm.  During the weekend, a team of religious and lay personnel presents a series of talks to the candidates.  With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the team and candidates live as a small Christian community over the weekend and discuss these talks in small groups.  The discussions provide an opportunity to share insights about the presentations and hear how others received that same presentation.  The talks and discussions cover a variety of topics including:

 

  • The lay person's role within the Church

  • Meaning of grace and sacraments

  • Importance of prayer and the study of God

  • Christian  leadership and living Christianity in community

  • Our call to bring Christ to others and transform the very environments in which we live

  • The importance of supporting one another in our efforts to live a truly Christian life

 

Throughout the weekend the participants will pray together, attend daily mass and have an opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation.
