CURSILLO is a Spanish word that means “short course”. The full title, CURSILLIOS IN CHRISTIANDAD, is been translated, “short course in Christian living.”
The Cursillo Movement provides a method by which individuals explore and establish a basic system of belief in a safe Christian environment. Cursillo weekends are held throughout the year at Camp Beckwith, are led by Lay and Clergy members, and serve as starting or “jumping off’ points for people to solidify their understanding of their life as a member of the body of Christ both as individuals and in community. In other words, Cursillo is intended to help Christians learn and live what is fundamental as a Christian. And, secondly, having done that, to help these same Christians discover and live out a personal vocation.
