The spanish word “Cursillo” means, “Little Course”. The Cursillo is a “little course in Chistianity”, it is an encounter with Christ in a small community of the Church so that his love and grace can be brought to every aspect of life.
It begins with a three day experience with daily mass, communion and visits to the Blessed Sacrament.
It starts on Thursday evening and ends Sunday evening. During those three days those attending live and work together listening to talks given by priests and laypersons and participate in small group discussions.
The talks include topics which deal with life, the Christian ideal, the Catholic faith and a method to bring Christ into the modern world.
