Welcome


Cursillo, a 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 us.
