This chapter shows that Catholic and Protestant Cursillos are lay-sponsored, parachurch, church-supported weekend retreats that address individual Christians as important, vital members of the larger Church body. Although some within the Cursillo movement shun the term retreat, the word accurately captures the intensive spiritual experiences and exercises that happen on a Cursillo weekend, whether Catholic or Protestant. As we have seen, six tables of five to six candidates and one mentor per table eat, sleep, pray, and worship together for seventy-two-hours, from Thursday to Sunday evening. Whether it is a Catholic Cursillo, a Tres Dias weekend, a Kairos Inside Weekend, or any of the other Fourth-Day weekends or their offshoots, the course is carefully orchestrated according to a manual by a team of dedicated Cursillo lay leaders who dedicate months of planning to sponsoring a successful weekend.
