Cursillo celebrates 50 years of 'moments closest to Christ'

Praising Cursillo in Christianity for the many ways it has brought people closer to Christ in central Illinois over the last 50 years, Bishop Daniel R. Jenky, CSC, also challenged the Cursillistas, who recently celebrated the anniversary with a Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Peoria, to look to the future.

He called them to return to the sources of Cursillo, treasuring what is essential and letting go of what is no longer helpful.

“Energetically and intentionally form the next generation of leaders and teachers and then pass on to them both the title and reality of leadership,” Bishop Jenky said in his homily at the Sept. 13 Mass.
