Cursillo is a worldwide lay movement of the Church which started in Spain in 1944. The Cursillo weekends are held at Notre Dame de la Providence Retreat House in Orleans.
Cursillo gives those who attend a weekend an understanding of basic Christian truths and the desire to journey with Christ. During the three days, a priest and a team of 13 lay men or women (weekends are not co-ed) give a series of talks on Christian living.

Knights of Columbus
Our Lady of Fatima Council #9742 was formed in 1988. Our members put in many hours running events and other activities to raise funds for our many charities, to enhance the social life of our parish community, and to assist our pastor with many temporal and spiritual activities in the parish.
We are always looking for new members and welcome inquiries from interested men. Membership is open to practical Catholic men in union with the Holy See, who are at least 18 years old. A practical Catholic is one who lives up to the commandments of God and the precepts of the Church.
Any member of the council will be happy to discuss the Knights and our Council with you.
For more information please visit our Council Website or contact Adam Johnson (613-400-9166)
