Cursillo is a worldwide movement of the Roman Catholic Church. Using the tools of piety, study and action, it provides for a three day encounter with self, Christ and each other to become Christian leaders in our environments. Cursillo offers a method to grow in Christian community by sustained sharing, prayer and study in small friendship groups. Friendship groups enrich our lives with piety, grow our understanding of faith in study, and take action to bring others to Christ.
To achieve the goal of evangelizing the world through personal friendships and through which we share our belief and experience of God’s love
