Edmonton Anglican Cursillo movement is stepping outside the box this year with a renewal weekend, November 16-18, tailored exclusively for those who have made their Cursillo in the past.   

“I attended my Cursillo Weekend 20 years ago, and I know I’m not the only one who has thought how awesome it be to be able to take it a second time,” says Secretariat Lay Director David Holehouse. “And I am definitely someone who will benefit for a renewal and a re-igniting of the core of Cursillo - the path to a closer walk with Christ and community.”  

Next year will see a return to a regular Cursillo Weekend for those looking to enrich their Christian life and leadership. But this is for past Cursillistas who want to revive and re-energize their spiritual journey and their role in building the kingdom. The co-ed Weekend features everything so loved about Cursillo, with a focus on renewing your relationship with Christ and community in a place of peace, dialogue, prayer and music. National speakers will join Edmonton leadership in presenting this joyful, refreshing Weekend.  

The Renewal Weekend at Star of the North Retreat Centre in St. Albert starts on Friday, at 5:30pm, with supper for all who can get away from work early. A closing eucharist service will end about 3:30 pm on Sunday.   

“I may not be alone in that over the years, life has opened up new paths and Cursillo has occasionally taken a back seat,” says Holehouse. “Life gets busy, and while we all do our share as labourers in God’s harvest, we could use some encouragement and refreshment at times. With this Weekend, we can revisit the essential tools of Piety, Study and Action, our community of prayer, plus our ongoing opportunities of Ultreya, Spiritual Direction, Sponsorships and Grouping.”
