Our Mission

Definition of the Movement from the 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 decisveness and direct their friendship with the virtue of constancy in their day-to-day life, personally and with others.
Please note that the Ultreya schedule for 2017 is posted.
Check for continued updates. 
The Men's Cursillo dates are April 6-9, 2017

If you want an opportunity to live on holy ground for 3 days,

experience true Christian Community,

and learn more about Jesus and our relationship with Him, The Cursillo is a perfect opportunity for it.

Cursillo (kur-see-yo) is the Spanish word meaning “short course”.

Thus Cursillo in Christianity means Short Course in Christianity.

The retreat phase begins on Thursday evening and the Cursillo begins on Friday and ends on Sunday evening.

During those three days, those attending live, eat and work together listening to talks given by priests and laity. They also share the Eucharist and pray together.
