The School of Leaders is not a school as we normally think of it and, in spite of its name, is intended as a place for every member of the Sacramento Diocese Catholic Cursillo to participate at any level (interested party, observer, small project helper, project lead, etc.).  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 Sacramento Diocese.

The School of Leaders offers a joyful and educational community experience where all can play a part in the success of Cursillo in the Sacramento. It is a place to take part in building God''s kingdom.

 •To promote and assure the authenticity and integrity of the Cursillo Movement in its three phases - Precursillo, Cursillo, and Postcursillo.

•To help facilitate and enhance the process of welcoming and inviting new members (Precursillo), providing an effective and authentic 3 day encounter experience (Cursillo), and sustain and stimulate community with joyful and enriching 4th day experiences (Postcursillo).

•To stimulate and activate cursillistas by offering a wide variety of participation levels of service in all the areas of Sacramento Cursillo without obligating or committing them to any specific activity.

•To unify an active 4th day community that provides ongoing input and feedback on the Cursillo’s effectiveness.

All 4th day cursillistas are welcome. Christ is counting on you!
