What is Cursillo?

Cursillo is a Spanish word that means “short course”.  The full title for Cursillo means “Short Course in Christianity”. It begins Thursday evening and ends on Sunday night. During those three days those attending live and work together listening to talks given by priests or other religious and laity. They also share the Eucharist and pray together.

The Cursillo is an exciting, prayer and joy filled weekend! The Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. Cursillo correctly applied can have very positive results in the spiritual revitalization of the world.

The goal of the movement is that Christ be the prime influence in society. The primary objectives of the Cursillo Movement are to develop in adult Christians a consciousness of their role to bring Christ to their families, and to the places where they work, socialize and to sustain them as they live their walk of faith. The “Christianizing of Environments” is what the Cursillo Movement is all about.
