What is Cursillo?
November 2nd through 5th
Camp Imadene
Cursillo is a Spanish word meaning 'short course'. Cursillo de Cristiandad means 'short course of Christianity. When one speaks of Cursillo, it is usually describing a 3 day spiritual retreat which revives the spirit and rejuvenates the church. A Cursillo is an encounter with Jesus Christ.

"The Cursillo Movement is both a movement and a method. The purpose of the movement is to create small groups of Christians that will evangelize their environments with the gospel spirit. The purpose of the method is to help persons live what is fundamental for being a Christian by committing themselves to the spiritual aids the church offers in order to grow in holiness, formation and evangelization".(from the Cursillo Pilgrim's Guide)

The goal of Cursillo is the goal of the Church: to bring all to Christ. This is done when informed, trained leaders set out with the support of others having a similar commitment. It helps to renew and deepen Christian commitment. The goal of the Cursillo Movement is that Christ be the prime influence in society. So it is said the PRIMARY OBJECTIVES of the Cursillo Movement are to develop in adult Christians a consciousness of their ability and mission to become leaders in the work of Christian renewal, and to sustain them as they provide a Christian leaven in civic, social and economic life. This "Christianizing of environments" is what the Cursillo Movement is about.
