Cursillo-rev-2b

Cursillos in Christianity is a movement within the church that, through a method of its own tries to, and through God’s grace manages to; enable the essential realities of the Christian to come to life in the uniqueness, originality, and creativity of each person.  In becoming aware of their potential and while accepting their limitations they exercise their freedom by their conviction, strengthen their will with their decision, to propitiate friendship in virtue of their constancy in both their personal and community life.

The Cursillo Movement consists of proclaiming the best news of the best reality: that God, in Christ, loves us.  Communicated by the best means, which is friendship towards the best of each one, which is the person and his capacity of Conviction, Decision, and Constancy.

What is a Cursillo Weekend?

The Cursillo Movement is introduced over a consecutive seventy-two hour period called a “Three Day Weekend.”  During the three day weekend, which begins Thursday evening and ends Sunday evening, a team of religious and lay personnel present a series of talks to the candidates. The talks and discussions cover a variety of topics including:
  • The lay person’s role within the Church
  • Meaning of grace and sacraments
  • Importance of prayer and the study of God
  • Christian  leadership and living Christianity in community
  • Our call to bring Christ to others and transform the very environments in which we live
  • The importance of supporting one another in our efforts to live a truly Christian life
Throughout the weekend the participants will pray together, attend daily mass and have an opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation.
