Cursillo

The Cursillo movement is a method to find, form, sustain and link lay leadership for Christ and His Church. The word “Cursillo” is a Spanish word meaning “little” or “short course.” Therefore a Cursillo retreat consists of an extended weekend designed to bring you into an encounter with Christ. During the three days of the retreat, the participants listen to talks given by priests and laity on topics including the Sacraments, Christian community, Christian Life, Grace, Faith and Evangelization in your environment. Each talk is followed by a discussion period. After attending a Cursillo weekend smaller groups of friends who have also attended meet on a regular basis to encourage one another in spiritual improvement and the Christian apostolate.

The Cursillo Movement is focused to help each of us fulfill our baptismal responsibility: to go forth, as apostles, and proclaim the Gospel. It also assists us in developing a deeper understanding of what it means to be fully Catholic by being fully Christian and gives us the tools to make Christian community possible in neighborhoods, parishes, work situations and other places where people live the greater part of their lives.
