Prayer of the Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in us the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and we shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy his consolations. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Welcome to the web site for North Carolina Episcopal Cursillo. We are a group of Episcopalians eager to develop lay leadership across our diocese. Cursillo is one method for training, supporting and ongoing development of Christian leadership. The Cursillo method contains two main components:

  • a 3-day weekend filled with 15 talks, group discussions, worship and fun... and
  • the 4th-day that represents how we live out the Christian life in support of one another.

There are a lot of Spanish terms like Ultreya and DeColores that you will see throughout these pages; for more info on what these terms mean and about Cursillo and its history, go to What is Cursillo? The secretariat is the governing body of the movement in this diocese.

Cursillo Weekend --- June 23 - 26

If you are looking for something more in your spiritual life, or if you need a "kick-start", you may want to consider attending the next Cursillo Weekend being conducted in the Diocese of NC. The weekend will be held at All Saints Episcopal Church in Concord, NC., June 23-26.

Cursillo is a spiritual renewal ministry in the Episcopal Church for men and women. During the course of the Weekend, you hear and discuss Talks given by lay persons and clergy about how the community of faith experiences God's love. The Book of Common Prayer is used for all worship services. Music is also a major part of the weekend.

The cost of the weekend is fifty ($50.00) dollars for all costs, including lodging, meals and materials. There will be options for housing such as commuting, motel accommodations and opportunities to say with All Saints parishioners who have volunteered space in their homes.

Please pray for the Cursillo, and pray for God's guidance if you should be a part of the Weekend.
