CURSILLO Make a Friend. Be a Friend. Bring A Friend to Christ.
The Cursillo (pronounced 'kur-see-yo) movement began in the 1940's in Spain. In 1957 it came to the U.S. a nd 10 years later - to Rochester, New York. The name, “Cursillo” translates into English as “short course". The founders were dedicated to helping adult Catholics come to know Christ better. Their intention - then and now - was to give the laity of the Church a renewed spirituality and a clearer understanding of how Christ can work through them to bring Christian values to all environments and people with whom they come in contact.
Cursillo develops a consciousness of our Baptismal responsibility to be evangelizers and leaders in the task of Christian renewal.
