The Cursillo Movement is a movement of the Catholic Church. The name cursillo is Spanish, meaning short course, and is often associated with a three-day weekend which is only one aspect of the Cursillo Movement. The proper name is Cursillo de Cristiandad (short course of Christianity). In general it teaches lay people how to become effective Catholic leaders and to take what they learn out into the world. Personal spiritual development is paramount along with staying strong in the faith by sharing in regular reunions with other participants.

Activities, Events, News, and Information
This weekend November 5 – 8, two candidates will make their Cursillo. Leo Gomez and James Rawlins have said yes to Christ. I ask for your prayers for these two humble men, that the holy spirit will embrace their hearts. He looks at the hearts of all of his children, and can see love and goodness in them. They will return back to our parish as apostles of his love. May they do not lose hope, do not lose strength.
