History of the Cursillo Movement

Cursillo Movement of the Los Angeles Archdiocese

In the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the Cursillo is offered in English, Spanish, Chinese, Filipino, Korean, Portuguese, and Vietnamese.

The English Cursillo weekend will take place at the Cursillo House in Pomona, CA.

Cursillos in Christianity (short course of Christianity) is an apostolic movement of the Roman Catholic Church. It was founded in Majorca, Spain by a group of laymen in 1944, lead by Eduardo Bonnin.

The Cursillo focuses on showing Christian lay people how to become effective Christian leaders over the course of a three-day weekend. The weekend includes fifteen talks, some given by priests and some by lay people. These talks are called “rollos”. In fuller sense, the Cursillo is an experience of people gathered into a small community by Christ to promote their growth in grace and to intensify their ability to be His witnesses in the world.
