National Cursillo Movement USA

Cursillos in Christianity is a Movement which, by its own Method, attempts from within the Church, to give life to the essential Christian truths in the singularity, originality, and creativity of the person. In discovering their potential and accepting their limitations, they will direct their freedom with their conviction, reinforce their will with decisiveness and direct their friendship with the virtue of constancy in their day-to-day life, personally and with others.


Mission: To understand and share the clear fact that God loves us in Christ. God loves me. To be Christian, more than anything else, is to feel loved by God and live astonished by this because what is most genuinely Christian is to be loved by God.

Objective and Charism: to achieve the goal of evangelizing the world through personal friendships and through which we share our belief and experience of God’s love

Method: Form small base communities of friends who share with each other their practices in prayer, their study, and their actions that flow from their encounters with self, with God, and with others in all their lived environments. The unique quality of the sharing is a commitment to one another that includes accountability.
