"Cursillo" (pronounced kur-see-yo) is a Spanish word meaning "little" or "short course." This short course begins on a Thursday evening and continues through Sunday night. During these four days participants live and work together listening to talks given by priests and laity. They also participate in Mass and pray together. The talks focus on grace, faith, piety, the sacraments, evangelization and much more. 

A Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. The main objectives of the Cursillo movement in Arkansas are to develop in adult Christians a consciousness of their power and mission to become leaders in the work of Christian renewal, and to sustain them as they provide a Christian leaven in civic, social and economic life.

This program is offered in English and Spanish through the Diocese of Little Rock Cursillo Office. To learn more, download the brochure. For information about Cursillo weekends in English, contact Nancy Christian, at (501) 664-0340, ext. 309.
