What is the Roman Catholic Cursillo Movement?Cursillo

The Cursillo movement evolved through the Catholic Church in Majorica Spain in 1944 and it began with its focus on “Bringing the Church to life in the hearts of men”. Its name, Cursillo, is Spanish for a shortened course in Christianity and its focus is bringing a knowledge of faith and a deep understanding of a faith filled relationship with Christ through a series of thought provoking talks. These talks are given over the course of an inspirational 3 day weekend. Today both men and women are afforded the opportunity to enjoy the Cursillo experience.
