Details: The inspiring, informative, and practical talks given throughout a Cursillo weekend are offered both by lay people who comprise a Cursillo team and by clergy, as the team includes one or two priests who are available for Masses and Confessions. A deacon or a professed religious may offer a talk as well. The weekend provides many opportunities for prayer, worship, good meals, and joyful fraternity.
