Hartford CursilloMake a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ
Cursillo is a Spanish word meaning “short course” in Christianity. A method to find, form, sustain, and link lay leadership for Christ and His Church. The short course is a 3-day structured weekend retreat that brings together lay people, clergy, and religious in friendship. The goal of Cursillo is that Christ may be the prime influence in society. Reach out today about joining our Cursillo movement!

God loves you?
Cursillo is a movement of people within the Catholic Church that proclaim the Good News that “God Loves You”, communicated through the best means possible, which is friendship.

School of Leaders
Do you want to learn more about Cursillo? Do you want to learn more about our Catholic Faith?
At each monthly meeting, members gather as a group to grow in friendship, to learn more about our movement and to learn more about our Church. We do this, like we do everything, through friendship and study. As we have already learned through our Weekend and through our post-Cursillo, we are all Leaders.
Do you want to learn more about Cursillo? Do you want to learn more about our Catholic Faith? Do you want to gather with like-minded Catholic pilgrims? Do you want to bring Christ closer to yourself, and to others?
School of Leaders starts with friendship followed by a technical talk on our movement, doctrinal talk, table discussions, and committee meetings. What are the committees you might ask? There are three equally important parts to our Movement: Pre-Cursillo, Cursillo and Post-Cursillo. Each part has a Chairperson and a committee which assist the Chair in maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the part. The committees meet during the School of Leaders meetings. It would be wonderful if everyone was part of a committee.
Hartford Cursillo is a non-profit and runs on the generous donations of its members and friends. All donations recieved go back to Hartford Cusillo and are primarily used to offset expenses for the weekends and provide scholarships to those who need financial assistance in order to attend.

For many members, after the initial introduction into Cursillo when they make their Weekend, they want to learn more. The Cursillo Movement is all about continuing our journey to learn about Christ’s friendship and to extend it to others. Here are some of the many recommendations for continued learning.
