Louisiana United Methodist Cursillo

Our organization operates for the United Methodist Church and the people of Louisiana with the approval and support of the Louisiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Spiritual Advisor of the Louisiana United Methodist Cursillo.

The Secretariat

The chief administrative and policy making body of the Louisiana United Methodist Cursillo is the Secretariat, which establishes policies for the movement, oversees finances, and does all things necessary to continue and further its purpose, including selection of its weekend leaders.

Also represented on the Secretariat are representatives from each of the local Ultreyas from across the state. Meetings are held on the Saturday of each Cursillo weekend at First United Methodist Church in Pineville at 12 p.m. and are open to members of the Louisiana Cursillo Community.
