All Fourth Day members are encouraged to become involved in presenting a
Cursillo Weekend. A great way to prepare oneself for this endeavor is to regularly
attend the School of Leaders meetings on the fourth Tuesday of each month at
St. Petronille's in Glen Ellyn.
Fourth Day members considering team participation should be prepared to
commit to attending ten formation meetings which will be held at a time and place
of the Rector/a's choosing. Prospective team members must be actively
participating in small group reunion. New Cursillistas should be active in small
group reunion for at least one year following their Cursillo weekend.
Any questions should be directed to the Three-Day Co-Chairs:
- Steve Jennrich
- Mary Kay Jennrich
The Joliet Cursillo operates (usually) four weekends a year in English, two for men

Attendance at a weekend requires an application and a sponsor. Applications and
