What is Cursillo?

Cursillo is a Spanish name for “small course”. In fact it is an abbreviation for the longer expression “Cursillo de Cristiandad” which means “A small course in Christianity”.

“This small course helped me move from my childish knowledge of Christianity to a fuller, adult-oriented knowledge of what Christianity really means. It got me going on a new and clearer path of life, and I am glad I participated in a Cursillo weekend.”

“There are now, as the Spanish song ‘De Colores’ implies, new beautiful colors in my life. I heard this joyful song on the weekend, and I keep humming it when I feel the need to be joyful again”
