As it is written in the book of Isaiah the prophet,
"The Voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the
way for the Lord, make his paths straight."
- Luke 3:4
elcome to the Cursillo Movement in the Diocese of Corpus Christi! This is your resource to upcoming events in your area. See the Submenu on the left for information on the history of the Cursillo Movement, Ultreya schedules, information on becoming a candidate and links to other Cursillo networks, including the National Cursillo Center.
If you aren't yet familiar with the movement, the National Cursillo Center defines Christian Cursillos as, "a movement that, through a method of its own tries to, and through God's grace manages to; enable the essential realities of the Christian to come to life in the uniqueness, originality, and creativity of each person. In becoming aware of their potential and while accepting their limitations they exercise their freedom by their conviction, strengthen their will with their decision, to propitiate friendship in virtue of their constancy in both their personal and community life."
The Cursillo experience begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity, comprised of talks by lay and clergy on the themes of God's grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be the church. The course is wrapped in prayer and meditation, daily Mass and Holy Communion . The "Cursillo community," made up of those who have attended a Cursillo short course, support the 72-hour experience with a prayer vigil, by preparing and serving meals, and other acts of love and self-giving. The Cursillo Short Course typically begins Thursday evening and concludes Sunday evening. Men and women attend separate weekends, either in English or in Spanish.
The Cursillo Movement invites everyone to be inspired by the love of God! De Colores!
