2019 National Encounter – 75th Anniversary of the First Cursillo in Mallorca!

Approximately 900 Cursillistas, laity, clergy and religious gathered at the University of Scranton in Scranton, PA on July 18-21, 2019 to celebrate the 29th National Encounter and the 75th Anniversary of the First Cursillo held at Cala Figuera in August 1944.

There was considerable diversity of language groups present at the encounter: English, Filipino, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, and Vietnamese. A ‘special thanks’ to all the Cursillistas who served behind the scenes to make this encounter possible.

The National Encounter ended with a Grand Fiesta to continue socializing through friendship! The Cursillistas enjoyed the facilities, food, fellowship, faith and the message of the encounter. Copies of all the talks presented during the National Encounter will be posted at My Resource Center on the National Cursillo website. Enjoy the slideshow!
