Nebraska Episcopal Cursillo #27
June 22-25 at Immaculata Monastery, Norfolk
Register now for Cursillo #27! The planning team must determine whether there is enough interest to hold the event this year. Cursillo is a ministry of the Episcopal Church. The weekend is intended to renew and deepen Christian commitment. Erin Rhian and Heather Bauer are the Co-Rectoras (leaders) for this weekend. They have chosen the verse Titus 3:5 for the weekend’s theme: "He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy". The event will begin the evening of June 22 and run through mid-afternoon June 25 at Immaculata Monastery and spiritual center in Norfolk. View the event flyer here and the application here. Feel free to contact Erin or Heather with questions. If you have attended a Cursillo weekend in the past, we can also use more team members and prayers! Hard copies of the flyer and application are available in the narthex.
