Lay Director: Ron Piersante

                     Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!                                                                   

If you have lived a Cursillo Weekend anywhere  in the world you know what our Catholic Community is all about. If you have not lived a Cursillo and are interested in learning about us we are worldwide  Catholic Movement which exists only to serve Christ. We believe that the Crucifiction and Resurrection did not occur just so that we can attend Mass on Sunday morning. Christ has called us to be His hands and feet in our world and to bring our world to Him. We proclaim and live the Good News of the Gospel by being the Good news to our family, neighborhood, work and social environments. Through a life of Piety, Study and Action we are called to “Make a friend, be a friend and bring our friend to Christ.”                                                                                                             

The Cursillo Movement of the Diocese of Youngstown has existed for 50 years and thousands of men and women of our Diocese have experienced the three day weekend. We attempt to hold two weekends per year, one for the men and one for the women. Our entire community takes part either by working the team, working  behind the scenes, or simply through prayers and sacrifice.                                                                                                             

The governing body of the Youngstown Cursillo Movement is called the Secretariat and its members are entrusted to ensure the progressive spiritual conversion of the entire Cursillo Community. Included in the Secretariat is the Spiritual Director, Lay Director, School of Leaders Chairperson, PreCursillo Chairperson, Cursillo Chairperson, PostCursillo Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              If you would like to learn more about the Cursillo please contact any member of the Secretariat. Christ is counting on all of us!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     De Colores,
