To visit Tres Dias International, go to http://www.tresdias.org or click here
The Tres Dias team leading the weekend is composed of former attendees of a Tres Dias or similar weekend like Cursillo or Walk to Emmaus, who have volunteered their time for months 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. Table groups discuss each talk. Discourse that develops from 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 it fosters a new revelation to the reality of Jesus Christ in our lives.
A Tres Dias encounter is completed only once in a lifetime. Therefore, it is not a substitute for a retreat, nor does it have the personal solitude of a retreat.
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. Tres Dias is for Christians of all denominations. The weekend is not necessarily for new believers, but for those who understand God's grace. It is especially gratifying for those who are in leadership within the church.
There are weekends for men and women. Someone who has previously attended a Tres Dias or similar weekend must sponsor each attendee.
