2nd Friday of the Month (starting May 14): 7:30 pm

Everybody is welcome

At the Visioning workshop held on Saturday April 24, 2021 several people mentioned Cursillo. Cursillo started at Ste-Genny's in 1987. Our then minister, Rev. Ian Smith, was on the first West-Island United Church Cursillo Weekend in February 1987. Many of our people, and people in neighbouring congregations, have been on Cursillo weekends. For most 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. The name was changed to Montreal United Church Cursillo (MUCC) in 1988 and MUCC was active until about 10 years ago when dwindling numbers made it impossible to continue. One of our old Cursillo brochures is available here.

We are not planning to restart Cursillo. However, we do want to rekindle the Cursillo spirit and to share that with others. We are thus starting monthly ultreyas on the 2nd Friday of the month from 7:30 - 8:30 pm. We'll start off with an opening prayer and welcome. Then someone will give a talk of about 10 min. The following 30 min or so we meet in small groups of 4 or 5 for fellowship, sharing of our faith and plans of action. The final 15 min we are all back together for more fellowship and sharing. We may also sing some of our favourite songs.
