What is Cursillo?

Cursillo starts with a three-day retreat to examine and celebrate yourself, your relationship with Christ, and your relationship with the Christian community. We begin with a silent retreat Thursday evening through Friday morning. For the rest of the weekend, you’ll hear short talks on a variety of topics from faith perspectives. During the days, you’ll discuss the talks and your impressions with the same small group. In the evenings, each group summarizes it discussion for the other tables.

We also offer meditation and reconciliation time as well as community meals. Two spiritual directors, at least on of them a pries, will be on the team and present throughout the weekend. And there’s a lot of music and singing – if you have an instrument, bring it along!

Throughout the weekend, your experiences will bring you closer to knowing yourself and Christ and the Christian community.

Men and women have separate retreats because the way we communicate is different. This is a safe but challenging weekend. We strive to provide an environment that helps you to grow in Christ’s love.
