Cursillo Leaders Workshop I (CLW-I) [R]

This workshop is the basic workshop for a new Movement or a Movement with new leaders. It is designed to give the leaders an in depth view of the Purpose, Strategy, and Method of the Cursillo Movement. If a Diocesan Movement has never had a CLW or if it has been a number of years since the last CLW, then CLW-I would be the workshop that should be given rather than CLW-II or LFW.

Cursillo Leaders Workshop II (CLW-II) [R]

This workshop is designed to be a follow up on CLW-I. Where CLWI explores the basics (Purpose, Strategy, Method), CLW-II goes a step farther and tries to capture the mentality of the founders of the Movement. The workshop attempts to give to those attending, the view of the Movement as seen by the founding fathers.

Leaders Formation Workshop (LFW) [R]

This workshop is quite different than CLW-I and CLW-II. Unlike CLW-I, it gives little attention to the Purpose, Strategy, and Method of the Movement. And unlike CLW-II, it gives little attention to the mission of the Church and the vision of the Movement and the mentality of the founders. Instead, it deals with who a leader is, what formation he/she needs, and what the growth process of the School of Leaders is and how the contents of the LFW presumes that the participants already know a great deal about the Movement and have the proper Cursillo mentality. Therefore, one should have attended a CLW prior to attending the LFW.

Spiritual Advisors Workshop [R]

The Spiritual Advisors Workshop is designed to produce the same type of fruits for the priests, vowed religious and deacons in the Movement as our CLW’s and LFW has produced for the lay leaders of the Movement. The talks of the workshop center on the Cursillo as a Movement and method, and the role of the Spiritual Advisor on the Cursillo weekend, at Ultreya, In Pre/Postcursillo, at the School and in celebrating liturgies and giving Spiritual direction.

Cursillo Evangelization Workshop (CEW) [D]

The CEW is designed to help Cursillistas to understand why they were called to their Cursillo weekend – to be evangelizers. The entire workshop centers on what it means to be an evangelizer and what tools the Cursillo Movement provides us with to evangelize.

Pre-Cursillo Workshop [D]

Diocesan Cursillo Movement to better understand how they are to select and prioritize environments within the diocese that needs evangelized. It points out how we should select and prepare the key people of these selected environments to live the Cursillo weekend in order to go back to their environments to form an environmental group. The workshop also shows how the individual cursillistas should be selecting key people from the environment they are immersed in.

The Cursillo Weekend Workshop [D]

This workshop is designed to assist the Diocesan Cursillo Movement to conduct a simple, pure Cursillo weekend using people who are living the Cursillo Method. It covers the role of the Team Coordinator, Team Members, Spiritual Directors, etc., and what Palanca for the weekend should be.

Postcursillo Workshop [D]

As the Leaders Manual states; “If the purpose of the Cursillo Movement is to find, lead to conversion and sustain evangelizers in their task of evangelizing the world, then the most difficult task will always be to sustain them.” The Postcursillo Workshop reinforces the tools of the Cursillo Method – Group Reunion and Ultreya. It goes a step further and shows how we must use the Group Reunion method in forming environmental groups with other Christians in the environment we are immersed in.

Pastoral Planning Workshop [D]

This workshop is designed to assist the Diocesan Secretariat and the School of Leaders to develop a plan to take the Movement from where it is in a diocese to where it can and should be: effectively transforming environments in the diocese. The workshop points out that without a plan, we tend to wander at the whim of the present leadership.

Commitment Workshop [D]

This workshop has the Diocesan leaders taking a good look at “what prevents me from making a deeper commitment to the Cursillo Movement.” It then has a way to have the participants arrive at a solution for these obstacles.
