The Anglican Fourth Day Cursillo
What is Cursillo?
Cursillo is a movement of the church. Its purpose is to help those in the church understand their individual callings to be Christian Leaders. The leadership may be exercised in work situations, in the family and social life, in leisure activities, and within the Church environment. Leadership, in Cursillo, does not mean power over others, but influence on others; all of us need to be aware that we can exert a positive influence on those around us.
What is the Goal of Cursillo?
The goal of Cursillo is the goal of the Church: to bring all to Christ. This is done when informed, trained leaders set out with the support of others having a similar commitment.
What does Cursillo do?
It helps to renew and deepen Christian commitment. Cursillo is one of many renewal movements. Many people have said Cursillo provides an important learning experience which causes many to feel like newly made Christians with a purpose and with support.
What is the Cursillo Movement About?
Cursillo is patterned on Jesus’ own example. He searched out and called a small group of potential leaders (pre-Cursillo); He trained them by word and example and inspired them with a vision (Cursillo Three-Day Weekend); He linked them together and sent them out into the world to bring the world to Him (Fourth Day).

Bishop Lawrence is a big proponent of Cursillo and has encouraged the clergy and the laity of the Diocese to consider the benefits this powerful ministry provides. Hear what he has to say in the video, “Three Aspects of Cursillo.” Those who have attended a Cursillo weekend often struggle to put into words their experience, this video provides a great explanation of what Cursillo encompasses, and why everyone should attend. As the bishop so elegantly states in the video, “Cursillo…enables us to experience in an intense way; Christian Love, Christian Fellowship, and the Christian Life lived in community.” Cursillo has changed many lives for those that have attended a weekend, now is your opportunity!
