Cursillo Renewal Movement

In today's world, can Christianity penetrate and thrive in the many areas of secular life?  Can it transform the world in a way that is in keeping with the times? The Cursillo Movement believes this is possible. Cursillo proposes no new type of spirituality but simply a method through which one's spirituality may be developed, lived and shared in any area of human life.

Cursillo (pronounced kur-see-yo) is a Spanish word meaning "short course".  During this three-day experience, those attending pray together, celebrate Eucharist, listen to talks given by priests, religious and laypersons, and share fellowship of Jesus Christ and each other.

Although a Cursillo is not a retreat, its aim is to concentrate on the Person and teachings of Jesus Christ.  As a Lay Movement, Cursillo gives those who attend a living understanding of basic Christian truths and a desire to serve the Church. It also provides a means to continue the Christian formation that begins during the three-day experience.
