The Cursillo is an encounter with Christ.
Cursillo is pronounced “kur-see-yo” and is a movement that promotes a spiritual revitalization of our world. The transference of the values of Christ to others with whom we come in contact is the Christianization that Cursillo promotes.
Cursillo awakens a consciousness of power and the mission to become a leader in the work of Christian renewal, with the support of Christian community.
As your faith is challenged in a pluralistic world, ask yourself . . .
• Do you want to live your faith in your daily life?
• Do you desire a Christian Community with which to share your faith journey?
• Do you wish to enrich your relationship with God?
• Do you want to be more confident in sharing your faith with our secular world?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, Cursillo will help you develop, live and share your spirituality in today’s society.
Cursillo is a three-day experience that looks at Christianity as a lifestyle from a New Testament perspective. It is a highly structured weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, and through them, their families, congregations, and the world in which they live. Cursillo is a combined effort of laity and clergy toward the renewal of the church.
During Cursillo, one will live and study together in singing, prayer, worship, and discussion. One will experience God's grace personally through the prayers and acts of service of a living support community.
Cursillo is for the development of Christian leaders who wish to strengthen their spiritual lives, may have unanswered questions about prayer, study, and sharing their faith, and understand that being a Christian involves responsibility.
