The purpose of TRES DIAS...
TRES DIAS is an adult weekend which aims to concentrate closely on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ. While TRES DIAS explores the basic Christian beliefs, it is best described as a spiritual encounter with Christ. Many who have attended the weekend have experienced a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Christ as they sense His love in a dynamic way.
What happens on a TRES DIAS Weekend?
The Spanish words “TRES DIAS” mean “Three Days.” TRES DIAS begins on a Thursday evening and ends the following Sunday evening. The TRES DIAS team leading the weekend is composed of former attendees of a TRES DIAS or a similar weekend like Emmaus or Cursillo and who have volunteered their time for weeks of preparation by working and praying together as a unit. There is presented in Three Days the basics of the Christian life and the meaning of living the Christian ideal and its application in our daily lives. TRES DIAS is centered around lay and clergy talks. Each talk is discussed by table groups. Interchange that develops in these discussions makes Christ’s teachings come alive. The basic atmosphere of TRES DIAS is one of love, joy, Christian fellowship, singing, laughing, and worship. TRES DIAS makes future Christian experiences more fruitful because of the zestful seasoning it brings to all Christian living. TRES DIAS can be made only once in a lifetime, therefore it is not a substitute for a retreat, nor does it have the individual solitude of a retreat.
Who should attend a TRES DIAS weekend?
Just as Christ meets you at your point of need, so TRES DIAS is designed for those who desire to be strengthened in their faith and to be brought closer to Christ in their discipleship.
