Cursillo Three Day Weekend
Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska
Return to CURSILLO Home Page
on "Sponsor Form" below will start an email to John Springer, the
Diocesan Lay Director. If you ask John to send you a
Sponsor Form, he will email to you a "pdf" file that you
will be able to print out and complete. Remember that
the candidate does NOT receive the sponsor form (in the application
packets we mail with the Newsletters, the Sponsor Form is usually blue).
After the candidate completes and signs the Application Form, you (as
the sponsor) need to fill out the Sponsor Form and have the candidate's
pastor sign the completed form. Then, please send
the completed Application Form (along with the $20.00
registration fee) and the completed Sponsor Form as soon as possible to
Diocesan Lay Director: John Springer, 1410 E 15th St, Crete,
NE 68333; 402-826-2699. The earlier the application
received, the earlier a welcome letter (with important information
about the Weekend) may be
sent to the candidate before the Weekend.
PLEASE read both
sides of the SPONSOR FORM … it will help you better
understand the responsibilities of being a sponsor (for example the
sponsor needs to write a personal Palanca letter to the candidate to be
read during the Three Day Weekend).
Also note that when a husband and wife are both eligible to
Cursillo, then the two should be prepared (Precursillo) at the same
time – the question of who attends
first is NOT important. In other words, it
is NOT mandatory that the husband live a Cursillo Weekend before his
wife. For more
explanation/details, read the Sponsor Form.
