2nd Friday of the Month at 7:30 pm

Everybody is welcome

At the Visioning workshop held on Saturday April 24, 2021 several people mentioned Cursillo. At Ste-Genny's Cursillo started in 1987. Our then minister, Rev. Ian Smith, was on the first Montreal United Church Cursillo Weekend in February 1987. Many of our people, and people from neighbouring congregations, have been on Cursillo weekends. For most people Cursillo made a big impact, which also often resulted in their congregations being full of lively activities. In order to keep the Cursillo spirit alive regular Ultreyas were held. Montreal United Church Cursillo was active until about 10 years ago when dwindling numbers made it impossible to continue. One of our old Cursillo brochures is available here. A sample Ultreya small group sharing and Group Reunion sharing can be found here.

We are not planning to restart Cursillo. However, we do want to rekindle the Cursillo spirit and to share that with others. On May 14, 2021 we started monthly Ultreyas on the 2nd Friday of the month from 7:30 - 8:30 pm. The program varies but it typically includes singing of several of our favourite songs and may include sharing of our faith and plans of action.
