Cursillo is a short-course Catholic experience held over three days. The three-day live-in experience focuses on a series of talks each followed by discussion, and operates in three stages: Precursillo, Cursillo Weekend and Post Cursillo.


The aim of the Cursillo weekend is to provide opportunity for men and women, both lay and religious, to reflect on what is fundamental to Christian living. It represents an opportunity to grow, in an atmosphere of friendship and joy.


Cursillo is active in the Maitland-Newcastle diocese. Cursillo Weekends are usually held once a year.


2015 Cursillo Weekend will be held on Friday 05 June beginning at 6:00 PM at Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation Centre, Wangi Rd, Myuna Bay. Come Journey with us as we share our faith stories- a weekend of meditations, prayers, songs and talks- at Myuna Sport and Recreation Centre, Wangi Rd, Myuna Bay. Friday evening 5th June to Monday 8th June 2015. P Rick McCosker 4043 2861 or Anne Moloney 6555 8918.

At times these gatherings are held in other parts of the diocese namely Forster, Raymond Terrace, East Maitland and Kotara.
