CURSILLO is Spanish for "short course in Christian living." The Cursillo method uses a three-day weekend and a separate “Day of Deeper Understanding” (on a weekend shortly after the weekend). A team of laity and clergy will present the fundamental principles of Christian living through a series of talks and meditations.

The weekend is designed to provide leadership training while reaffirming your commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ. After the weekend, there is a continuing program in which you are encouraged to participate. Since both this weekend and the subsequent involvement are demanding, we ask you to pray seriously about your application before you submit it. Acceptance is not automatic for a specific weekend, but will be prayerfully considered. Once the Pre-Cursillo committee determines the candidate’s participation in the upcoming weekend will be beneficial, the candidate will receive notice of acceptance. If your application is accepted, but you are unable to attend the designated weekend, your application will remain active for two upcoming weekends.

In order to gain the most from the weekend, you should be in the best possible spiritual,
emotional and physical condition. Cursillo is held at Camp Stevens near Julian, which is at
4,400 ft, and is situated on hills. The dining hall is up the hill from the sleeping area. If this presents a problem to you, please explain and we will try to accommodate you.

We are currently holding co-ed weekends. Both singles, and married couples are cordially
invited. Husbands and wives are encouraged to attend the same weekend, but if childcare
or other situations prevents both attending, they can attend on successive weekends.
Husbands and wives should complete separate applications.
