What is Cursillo? PDF Print E-mail

This Thursday evening through Sunday I will be attending a Cursillo outside Colorado Springs. I have never been able to attend one before, and hadn't even been invited to attend one until after I was ordained and my weekends were generally full. I jumped at the opportunity when I was invited a few months ago by a parishioner at Holy Apostles. Sherry and I mention the Cursillo movement as one of the ways of evangelizing Catholics, but neither of us had attended one.

But I'm a bit confused. One Cursillista agreed that it's a tool for evangelization, while another said, no, it's purpose is to develop and support leadership among Catholic lay folks who are already engaged in their faith. The Cursillo website page titled, "What is Cursillo?" is linked in the title of this post. It wasn't very helpful - I'm guessing because the flow and content of the Cursillo is kept under wraps in order to have a greater impact on the attendees.

So without divulging the content of the Cursillo weekend, what effect did it have on your life?
Is it an evangelizing tool, a means of supporting active lay Catholic leaders, both?
Or did you experience something entirely different?
To whom would you recommend the weekend?

Thanks for your input.

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
