Cursillo®

Cursillo®

The Cursillo® Movement pursues two purposes or objectives. The immediate purpose is to provide a conduit for living what is fundamental for being a Christian, namely, the on-going and total conversion of the person. The end purpose is to vertebrae Christianity in society by means of these persons who live what is fundamental for being Christian (the love of God and neighbor) in their daily lives.

Simply explained, the purpose of the Cursillo Movement is that we become the Good News, and that our actions naturally turn out to be evangelical in our daily lives.

School of Leaders

WHAT IS SCHOOL OF LEADERS?

School of Leaders is a gathering of Cursillistas who want to further their knowledge of the Cursillo Movement. During School of Leaders, there is time for Leaders Group Reunion, a short presentation about an aspect of Cursillo by a Lay Cursillista, a short presentation by a Clergy when possibly, and time for work of the Sections. School of Leaders is open to anyone who has made a 3-day Cursillo weekend, and is strongly encouraged for those interested in serving as a team on a future weekend.

School of Leaders is for EVERYONE who has attended Cursillo, but especially those who wish to help on a Cursillo weekend.
