What is Cursillo?

Cursillo (pronounced Kur-see-yo) is a Spanish word meaning “little” or “short course.” Cursillo was designed to revitalize the church through providing opportunity to deepen one’s personal relationship with Christ.  This program is designed to worship God, equip one to live more joyfully and effectively as a follower of Christ, to grow in our faith and walk with the Lord. Cursillo models how to care for each other in a Christian environment by living and sharing the love of Christ.  This enables individuals to spread God’s word to the people you interact with on a daily basis. Cursillo is different from most Christian retreats or conferences as it has also developed an ongoing program where members enjoy a continued Christian community of love and encouragement.
