Archdiocese of Oklahoma City

Cursillo Website


Goal:  To provide a source of Cursillo information for the Cursillistas of the archdiocese and a Catholic Christian face to those outside of archdiocese.

Objective:  To have an easily navigable website that is the source of information for all Cursillo based events, communications and teachings.



All information on the website should be Cursillo based.


Links should only be those that provide Cursillo information to the visitor


Information just being Catholic does not qualify it to be on the site.


Postings in "Read All About It" should only relate to Cursillo events, communications and teachings.


A Cursillista being involved in a Church related event does not constitute the reason to be on the webpage.


Cursillo events should be posted that are archdiocesan wide.


Announcements of Ultreyas, Groups Reunions, Leadership training are to be encouraged.


Prayer request should be monitored to be acceptable to our cause, but not limited to those submitted by Cursillistas.
