The Cursillo Movement
The Cursillo Movement is a movement within Catholic Church that shares the fundamentals of being a Christian as an individual and in unity. The Cursillo helps people discover and fulfill their personal vocations while promoting groups of Christians who leaven their environments with the Gospel.
The purpose of the Cursillo Movement is to make Christian Communities possible in neighborhoods, parishes, work situations, and other places where people live the greater part of their lives. The Cursillo makes it possible for anyone in the world to live a Christian life in a natural way. It is the means by which men and women are able to live the Gospel.
“Cursillo is an instrument raised up by God for the proclamation of the gospel in our time.” – Saint John Paul II
Since it is a movement of the Church, the Cursillo Movement has the same apostolic purpose as the Church.
As Pope Paul VI has said, “..the Church exists to evangelize.”
The Cursillo Movement provides the means to accomplish this evangelization by focusing to assist the baptized to identify and complete their mission on earth. The aim of the Cursillo movement is to prepare men and women to go forth as apostles, and proclaim the Gospel. It provides the Cursillistas (people who have experienced the Cursillo) with the training and the tools needed to sustain their mission on earth: Group Reunions, Ultreyas, and School of Leaders.
Three Stages of the Cursillo Movement
