Cursillo in Christianity is an international movement with a large presence in the Wichita Diocese and at Holy Cross.
The goal of the Cursillo Movement is to light a fire in the hearts of Catholic Christians to truly live their faith in every aspect of their lives and to be a light to others. The fire is lit in a three-day retreat or “short course” at the Spiritual Life Center in Wichita. (Cursillo, pronounced kur-see-yo, is the Spanish word meaning “short course”.) Two men’s weekends and two women’s weekends are held each year.
The fire is kept burning through weekly meetings of “friendship groups” and monthly gatherings of “Cursillistas” (those who have made the weekend retreat) from all three Hutchinson parishes.
