April 14- 17, Women’s Cursillo Weekend at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center (Norwood, OH). A movement of the Catholic Church that began in Mallorca, Spain, in 1944, Cursillo is “a short course in Christianity” and its essence is that God loves us. On a Cursillo a person lives three days encountering self, Jesus and others in community. It is presented by a team of laypersons and clergy in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Bishop Joe Binzer lived his Cursillo prior to entering the seminary, and more than 3000 people in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati are cursillistas, living their lives through the Cursillo method.
