What is Cursillo?

The Cursillo is an encounter with Christ.  Its mission is to bring Christ to others by learning how to embrace our vocation as laypersons.  It promotes a spiritual revitalization of our world.  By living a fully Christian life, we bring Christ to others, including members of our family, workplace, school, etc.  The Cursillo Movement provides a method and a technique to provide each of us with the tools, the mentality, the strength, and the support to make this natural type of evangelization possible.


The Cursillo weekend is more a workshop than a retreat. It is an opportunity to learn, grow and share in Eucharist prayer, adoration, and personal reflection within the context of a Christian community.  The weekend is designed to inspire and encourage the deepening of faith and to develop a consciousness that we are called to be leaders in our environments.
