A Cursillo is a retreat whose primary purpose is to form an apostolic movement of Christians who have a unified vision of how to make Christianity in eavery environment.  One’s spirituality may be developed, lived, and shared in any area of human life where there are Christians willing to dedicate their lives to God in an on-going manner.

Cursillo weekends are held semi-annually and have been held in various locations including Bishop Lane Retreat House.  They begin on Thursday evening and continue through Sunday evening.  Cursillo retreats are open to all parishioners 21 years and older.  There are separate retreats for men and women.  Additionally,  there are Spanish speaking retreats once a year as well.

Reunions are held monthly by some members who have experienced the Cursillo retreats.
