Welcome to Your Fourth Day (Postcursillo)!

Welcome to your Fourth Day (Postcursillo)!

The primary objective of the Fourth Day (Postcursillo) is help each person find his or her own place in the Church and the world and for postcursillo to provide them the means to persevere in living the Christian life.  The process of the postcursillo  involves both individual and community aspects, as the basic aim is not for an individual to try to know more or to do more but to be more so that the whole person is renewed interiorly and progressively each day in line with their charisms and the apostolic opportunities that surround them daily. Combined with the Group Reunion and Ultreya, the Cursillista has the means through which they might be able to persevere in their efforts  to become an apostle. (The Postcursillo, Group Reunion and Ultreya).

As a Cursillista our main objective is “to increase and continue the conversion process, and to live what is fundamental for being a Christian throughout one’s life.” (Leaders’ Manual, US Catholic Cursillo Movement)As the Post-Cursillo Chair, it is my privilege to have the responsibility to help each Cursillista in the Diocese of Birmingham strive to renew, accelerate and continue your quest to come to see Christ more clearly, love Him more dearly, and follow Him more nearly so you are able to more fully live out your baptismal call to assist in building up the Body of Christ. To this end, I challenge you to continue using the Cursillo methodology to its fullest by grouping weekly, and attending Ultreya and School of Leaders monthly.> 

Please remember that you are in my prayers daily.  If there is anything I can do to help you live out your Fourth Day more fully, please do not hesitate to contact me. sreese1944@gmail.com  or call (205) 807-3346.
