Spanish word meaning 'a short course', is a movement within
the Church intended to help Christians know God's love and grace and to
help these same Christians discover and live out their personal
vocations in the world.
The first Cursillo weekends
were developed in the Roman Catholic Church in Majorca, Spain. Spanish
airmen who were stationed at air bases in Texas in the early 1940's
brought Cursillo to the United States. The first Cursillo weekend in
the Episcopal Church was conducted in the early 1960's with help from
Roman Catholic sponsors in the Diocese of Iowa.
Cursillo is a movement of
the church. Its purpose is to help those in the church understand their
individual callings to be Christian Leaders. The leadership may be
exercised in work situations, in the family and social life, in leisure
activities, and within the Church environment. Leadership, in Cursillo,
does not mean power over others, but influence on others; all of us
need to be aware that we can exert a positive influence on those around
