Big Sky Cum Christo
The Big Sky Cum Christo movement in the Eastern Diocese of Montana is closing in on 50 years of active ministry in 2015. The Cursillo Ministry (1965-1984) and the Cum Christo Ministry (1984-today) still continue to be special gifts to the many of us who have attended one of the 591 weekends that have been held in Eastern Montana. The first Cursillo weekend was held January 7th, 1949 on the Island of Majorca, Spain. The first Cursillo in the United States was held in Waco, Texas in 1957. The first Cursillo in Montana took place in Great Falls in February of 1965. The first weekend in Billings was held in July of 1965. A total of 275 Cursillos were held in 20 different cities in the Diocese of Great Falls/Billings between 1965 and 1984. Since 1984, 315 Cum Christos have been held in our Diocese. In June 2015, Miles City will most likely be the site of our 600th weekend in Eastern Montana.
Big Sky Cum Christo will be hosting our 50th Anniversary Celebration with a Diocesan wide special event June 19-21, 2015 in Billings. It will be held at Billings Central Catholic High School. Bishop Michael Warfel and Tom Peterson will be our featured speakers. Tom Peterson, from Atlanta, GA is the President and Founder of Catholics Come Home.org. Much to our delight it turns out that Tom is also a 4th Dayer.
Everyone is welcome to attend our 50th Anniversary and join us as we celebrate our remarkable history. Babysitting will be available on site as a service project for Billing Central Students.
