Cursillos in Christianity in England and Wales
Cursillo is a Catholic movement dedicated to spreading the Word of God and helping people form a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. The Cursillo Movement is active right across the globe and in different Christian denominations.
We are a community of lay and religious who strive by our mission and our daily lives to live a life following the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Our community extends across the United Kingdom, and is available for all to join and share in the joys of living the Gospel.
Cursillo employs a method that emphasises the importance of a balanced life of prayer, continued spiritual study, and action.
The Cursillo method enables you to:
- Expand your prayer life
- Spiritually grow through an ongoing formation process that increases your knowledge
about God’s Word and your Catholic faith.
- Spread God’s Word in a natural way to the people you interact with in the very environments in which you live.
What is Cursillo?
Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. It promotes a spiritual revitalisation of our world.
By living a fully Christian life, we bring Christ to others, including members of our family, school, workplace, etc. Cursillo develops a consciousness that we are called to be leaders in our everyday lives.
Cursillo in Christianity
Cursillo is an encounter with Christ, self and others. It provides a method that encourages us to live a fully Christian life.
By being Christlike within each of our daily activities, we approach evangelisation as a very natural act.
The Cursillo gives us the tools, the mentality, the strength and the support to make this natural type of evangelisation possible and promotes a revitalisation of ourselves and our world.
Who is Cursillo for?
Cursillo is for everyone.
It is an inspiring experience, offering renewal and a deepening of Christian commitment and faith within our own lives.
Cursillo helps us to live our lives with the uniqueness, originality and creativity that flows through the many gifts that God has given us.
The Cursillo weekend is a Catholic residential 3-day course that begins with a retreat phase.
There is a series of talks given by Lay people and spiritual directors, which are then discussed together in small groups.
Holy Mass is celebrated daily, with opportunities for reconciliation, times of adoration, prayer and meditations.
