The primary purpose of Precursillo is the study of environments and the searching of influential persons within those environments in order to assist in accomplishing the purpose of the Cursillo Movement–to vertebrae Christianity by leavening of environments with the Gospel. As part of this purpose, Precursillo is also responsible for preparation of the persons who will attend the 3-day Cursillo, with a view toward a perennial living of the Cursillo in the Postcursillo. (Cursillo Leader’s).
Greetings to My Cursillo Family,
I am honored to be working in this capacity for the greater Birmingham diocese. I completed my weekend in April 2012 and will be serving you from now until Dec 2021. I am thrilled to have met my husband through Cursillo, I have 3 children and 3 children-in-love.
As you know, “Making a Friend, Being a Friend and Bringing a Friend to Christ” is more than just inviting someone to attend a Cursillo Weekend, submitting the application, praying for them and delivering them to the weekend. Candidates who have more contact with Sponsors prior to the weekend appear to have a more engaging and fulfilling weekend and have an easier transition toward their 4th-Day experience and Grouping.
In addition to processing Candidate applications, as pre Cursillo Chair, I am to ensure that both Sponsors and Candidates are qualified and prepared for the weekend. As Sponsors we get to prepare our Candidates, by offering up prayers, helping with the application, reviewing the Cursillo book and addressing the cost for the weekend.
In closing, be assured that should you have any questions or concerns you are welcome to contact me.
“May the Lord bless you and take care of you; May the Lord be kind and gracious to you; May the Lord look on you with favor and give you peace.” Numbers 6:22-26
Mary Young – Pre Cursillo Chair
