Diocese of Central Newfoundland


Diocese of Central Newfoundland Cursillo

The Diocese of Central Newfoundland has been chosen to host the upcoming Canadian Anglican National Cursillo Triennial Conference and General Meeting, August 28 - 30, 2015.    We look forward to welcoming delegates from across the country to the scenic Lewisporte area.   

The chosen venue, Emmanuel Camp and Conference Centre, offers beautiful accommodations, a glorious worship space and ultra- modern  kitchen and dining  room.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the worship space there filled with Cursillistas and their friends for the Grand Ultreya on Saturday August 29?  (Ultreya is a Spanish word of encouragement; meaning onward and upward.) The space can seat 1000 so there’s room for everyone!  One need not have attended a Cursillo Weekend to attend this Saturday evening gathering. Everyone is welcome! The planning committee has been working diligently and preparations are well in place.



Cursillo has been active in the diocese since the mid -eighties.  Cursillo has the oversight and strong support of the Diocesan Bishops. Always, there is a Bishop present at a Cursillo Weekend. 

Cursillo weekends bring Christians together to commit or recommit to the realities of what it means to live a Christian life.  It is a movement within the Church with a method which enables people to live a life in Christ by supporting and encouraging one another through prayer and planned action (individually and collectively).  Thus, being cognizant of the needs of others, we move forward to change the world for Christ following the Cursillo motto: “Make a Friend, Be a Friend and bring that Friend to Christ”.
