There used to be a time when people were invited on a Cursillo Three Day Weekend without any previous experience, which could be quite a shock! These days we like people to become involved in our wider Fourth Day activities, before attending a weekend.
When someone decides that the time is right to go on a weekend then we ensure that another Cursillista “sponsors” them in their pilgrimage. The sponsor makes sure that the person understands what the week-end is about and supports them on their practical as well as spiritual journey, praying for them and encouraging them.
In recent years we have found that sponsorship helps people to enjoy the weekend much more than would otherwise be the case.
