The word Cursillo means short course, such as one would run in a race. The full name, Cursillos in Cristiandad, has been translated as “short courses in Christian living.” This movement within the Church is intended to help Christians learn and live what is fundamental to being a Christian, and help these same Christians discover and live out a Christian vocation.  Cursillo helps Christians measure the depth of their faith, to get on with their mission in the world, to connect them with others with the same goals in networks, and to hold up examples of ordinary Christians who are acting as apostles in their ordinary life. 

You must have a Cursillista sponsor who will be able to answer your questions and tell you more about life in the Fourth Day, which is unique to Cursillo. In addition, you must have the endorsement of the Rector. If you are interested in Cursillo, you may contact the Parish Office to receive a brochure with more details about Cursillo, along with an application. The next step is to speak with the Rector, who will put you in touch with parishioners who are Cursillistas.
