Cursillo Team Membership Requirements
The purpose of this note is to provide you with the qualifications for being able to serve as a team member:
1)You must be living the movement by being active in all phases of the movement. This means regular grouping, attendance at Ultreyas, attempting to sponsor people for the weekend, and attending Clausuras at the end of weekends.
2) It must have been a full year since you made your own Cursillo weekend. The purpose of this requirement is to eliminate those who have participated on a weekend and then found their apostolate elsewhere.
3) Cursillo should be your apostolate. In other words, you should be continuing to learn about the Cursillo methodology and how to more effectively communicate it to others. You accomplish this by attending the School of Leaders (SoL).
Therefore, Cursillistas are considered “qualified” to serve on a Cursillo 3 Day Weekend team if it has been more than a year since their own weekend, are active in all phases of the movement (Grouping and Ultreya) and also are participating in Combined, Satellite or Remote SoL meetings more than six times in a year. Also, if participation of a Cursillista is primarily through the Remote SoL, that Cursillista also needs to have physically attended at least one Combined or Satellite SoL meeting once a quarter during the year as well.
It is national Cursillo policy that all team members come from the School of Leaders, and since the Cursillo Movement in the Diocese of Birmingham has not been in full compliance/obedience in previous years regarding this requirement, this is the underlying reason for the above specified listing of requirements for future Cursillo team membership.
Therefore, if you are interested in serving on a team, reflect on whether you are fully qualified, and if so, please feel free to go on to the diocesan Cursillo website (www.cursillo.org/birmingham) and fill out a team application to express your interest in being a team member in the future.
May God hold you in the palm of His hand forever.
