Is Cursillo for Me? 


You've heard of Cursillo or maybe you know someone that has attended a Cursillo Weekend. Now you are wondering if Cursillo is the right program for you. If you are seeking a deeper relationship with Christ and want to continue growth in your Catholic faith, review this information before you make a decision on Cursillo: 


Here is what Cursillo is NOT: 

CURSILLO IS NOT an organization; it is a powerful, worldwide lay movement of the Catholic Church.

CURSILLO IS NOT just a retreat. While the first step is a 3-day weekend encounter, the real value begins after attending a weekend.

CURSILLO IS NOT a solution for persons suffering emotional distress or those that are experiencing major changes in their life. 


Here is what Cursillo IS:

CURSILLO IS an encounter with oneself, Christ, and others.

CURSILLO IS a proven method for finding solutions to the issues faced in our daily lives.

CURSILLO IS a proven method for growing and staying in a closer relationship with Christ for the rest on ones life.

CURSILLO IS a proven method to help bring a relationship with Christ to others around you.

CURSILLO IS a proven method of sharing with others about your daily struggles and triumphs in living out God's plan for your life.

CURSILLO IS authentically Catholic; everything is directly based on the teaching of the Catholic Church and Scripture.

CURSILLO IS an accepted movement in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas and recognized by the Vatican. 


CURSILLO IS open to all stable, post-adolescent Catholics who can validly receive the sacraments.  It is generally suggested that recent converts to Catholicism wait at least one year prior to beginning their Cursillo journey.



A free will donation is taken up on Sunday to cover the cost of the weekend.  Scholarships are available for those needing financial assistance.  Financial ability is never an obstacle for anyone who seeks to attend a weekend to begin their Cursillo journey.
