A Cursillo Weekend is often held at Leiston Abbey. Courses can
be two or three days long, usually ending on a Sunday afternoon.
All weekends are led by a team of lay and clergy, who have
experienced a Cursillo weekend themselves and are delighted to
support, encourage and walk alongside a new group.
Those attending a weekend are known as Pilgrims.

Fifteen short talks
Small Group Discussions

Space for private prayer
During the weekend pilgrims and staff are on a journey
from arrival to the final Eucharist: thinking, praying,
laughing and crying together.
After the weekend pilgrims are called Cursillistas.
Anyone not already part of a small group reunion,
is invited to join one.
