Baptized into Christ


As a Cursillista, you have personally experienced the power and value of faith sharing with others in a small group. Are you being called to lead a small faith sharing group in your own parish? The Cursillo Secretariat encouragesyou to offer Baptized Into Christ, and we are willing to advise and support you in your efforts, and provide the necessary materials.

Baptized Into Christ is a series of six meditations that focus on the life of Christ, and is based on the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. The meditations, written and recorded on CD by Mary Ann McLaughlin and Fr. John Sassani, are accompanied by music and beautiful works of art.

Conducted in person or using Zoom, the sessions offer a one hour spiritual oasis and a nurturing prayer experience. Prior experience leading a group is not necessary. There is no additional prep work for the leader, and no homework for the participants.

To support you, we offer the following resources.

● Baptized into Christ for Leaders Zoom Session.

This session will consist of a sample meditation and faith sharing session, and an opportunity for questions.

● Tips for Leading a Small Faith Sharing Discussion

● Guide to Using Baptized into Christ via Zoom

● An Announcement for your Parish Bulletin
