Ultreya UK 2023, Rochester

4th September 2023

Cursillistas were joined by the Right Reverend Dr Jonathan Gibbs, Bishop of Rochester in the Quire of Rochester Cathedral for an uplifting service following a walk of Witness along Rochester High Street to Rochester Cathedral.

What a summer - six Caminos in six weeks!

Held from Saturday 1st July to Saturday 5th August  2023 Leicester Cursillo toured the Diocese of Leicester with their Camino roadshow.

What is a Camino? Tea, Cake & Conversation – and an opportunity to catch up with other Cursillistas.

To help us celebrate the landmark that was our 50th Cursillo weekend held by the Diocese, Caminos were held on successive Saturdays across the Diocese of Leicester. These started at 2-00pm at St Thomas Beckett Church Tugby on Saturday 1st July and finished at St Peter & St Paul Great Bowden on Saturday 5th August, visiting Leire, Shepshed, Pickwell and Hinckley in between.
