Welcome to the Website of the Catholic Cursillo Movement in the Archdiocese of Miami, Florida, USA.
We greet you as friends on the mutual journey home to the Father God using the words of our patron saint, the Apostle Paul, to the Romans, “To all God’s beloved…who are called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Rom. 1:7.
What happens after the Cursillo?
The weekend lasts three days; the fourth day is the rest of one’s life, and Cursillistas are urged to make some sort of commitment to God to intensify the growth and deepening of their faith. The Cursillo weekend neither pretends nor is able to give a complete Catholic formation in just three days. Cursillistas are by no means finished products on the Sunday night of the weekend. So, additional activities are available to increase their knowledge and keep aflame their enthusiasm. Cursillistas are encouraged to form small reunion groups that meet regularly to share their walk with Christ, and their progress with piety, study, and action. Periodically, another larger type of reunion, called an Ultreya (Spanish for Onward) is held in which Cursillistas give brief talks developing one of the points covered during the Cursillo weekend
