To awaken a hunger for God in the world…
to communicate to people that God loves them.

It's not a retreat...
it's an advance!

 

What is Cursillo?
The Spanish word Cursillo translates to “little course”,
in our case a little course in Christianity

The Cursillo Movement is a lay movement within the Catholic Church that shares the fundamentals of being a Christian as both an individual and in community. Cursillo helps people discover and fulfill their personal vocations while promoting groups of Christians who inspire their environments with the Gospel.

It begins with a three day experience of living Christianity…
a little course in Christian community with daily Mass, communion and visits to the prayer room or chapel.

It starts Thursday evening an ends Sunday evening. During those three days, those attending live and work together listening to talks given by the spiritual directors and laypeople and participate in small group discussions.

The talks include topics that deal with real life… the Christian Ideal,  the Catholic faith and how we can bring Christ into the modern world.

Come and See

 

 

The purpose of Cursillo is to build Christian Communities in neighorhoods, parishes, workplaces and other environments in which people live the greatest parts of their lives. Cursillo makes it possible for anyone in the world to live a Christian life in a natural way. It provides a means by which men and women can live the Gospel every day.

 

After the Weekend

Cursillo continues with a method to work together to bring other men and women to know and experience the love of Christ.

Cursillistas are invited to become part of a small Christian support groups which are joined to a larger Christ-centered community in the Archdiocese of Newark and around the world.

The community spirit of the weekend is continued through reunions of small groups of Christians and through the gathering of these groups into larger communities.
