The School of Leaders is not a school as one would normally think of it. In spite of its name, it is intended to be a place for every member of the Kalamazoo Catholic Cursillo to participate. It's a place to find out what is happening and provide input and/or apply your gifts, available time, and desire to help in whatever way makes sense for you. In essence, it is a group of Cursillistas interested in helping Cursillo to fulfill its mission of building God's Kingdom in the Diocese of Kalamazoo.
The School of Leaders offers a joyful and educational community experience where all can play a part in the success of Cursillo in the Diocese. It is a place to take part in building God's Kingdom in many ways:
All 4th day members are welcome, new Cursillistas and the seasoned. We'd love to have you and look forward to seeing you.
Christ is counting on you!
The School is and will always be an essential piece for the continuation and development of the Cursillo Movement. In other words, if there is no School, there are no Cursillos and there is no Secretariat. There could be any other retreat or encounter, but it should not to be called “Cursillo”. There may be a group of “politicians” who can gather together for a good debate or good people who get together to pray but that is not a Secretariat.
The School is the appropriate environment where the Charism of the Movement can be embraced, studied and promoted; in order to live and preserve its method, essence and purpose. It is the climate of Group Reunion of leaders where it is appropriate to help each other discover our gifts and talents, identify where to put them to work and assume the responsibility to be a leader in the church, in the Movement and in the environments.
