Women's Cursillo Weekend

Introduction to Team

The Diocese of Gaylord Cursillo Secretariat, under the auspices of the bishop, is committed to promoting growth and development of the Cursillo movement in the Diocese of Gaylord as a viable method of helping men and women to be disciples of Christ in their everyday environments.

In keeping this commitment, the Secretariat is further committed to ensuring that the Gaylord Cursillo Movement remains genuine and adheres to the direction set by the National Cursillo Movement. To do this, the Secretariat has established certain criteria to be considered to serve on team. The sole purpose of these criteria is to select servants that are committed to the "Cursillo Method" of evangelization so that they will be effective servants to the men and women they want to serve. By clicking Team Selection Guidelines suggested by the Secretariat, you can view and download the document to keep as a reference.
