Cursillo Has Found a New Anglican Expression

Ambridge, PA – On Saturday, August 29, 2009, a group of Cursillo leaders from the Anglican Church in North American met in Bedford, TX, to form Anglican 4thDay.

The name Anglican 4thDay was selected as it best symbolizes the Cursillo experience, which begins with small group interactions and leads to a three-day retreat. The emphasis on Piety, Study, and Action provides pilgrims with a pattern to living a meaningful and robust Christian life.

“Though we are changing our name,” said Kathleen Adams, one of the original organizers,” we will be continuing the traditions passed down to us in the Cursillo experience.”

The day and half meeting in Texas was exciting and productive. From it, Articles of Incorporation were approved and signed, Board members were elected, By-Laws were adopted, and the first draft of the Anglican 4thDay handbook was reviewed.

Cursillo (Cursillos en la Cristiandad) was originally founded in the mid-1940’s in Majorca, Spain, by Roman Catholic priests and laymen as a method for developing Christian leaders.

“We are very pleased,” said Ms. Adams,” that this evangelical experience will continue in the new Anglican Church in North America.”

By of the first of 2010, the Anglican 4thDay National Board will be ready to receive applications for affiliation from Anglican Cursillo leadership groups across our Province.
