Join the Cursillo Community at St. Therese in San Diego and Learn More about God's Love for Us

Cursillo starts with a Three Day Weekend up in the mountains near Julian.  Men attend one weekend and then women attend the next weekend. The weekends take place twice a year in the  Fall and in the Spring.  At the weekend, we hear short courses in Catholic theology, spirituality and practical Christian living. We experience a Christian community and we get back to the basic truth: love God and love one another.

After the weekend, we meet in small groups to continue to nurture and deepen our spiritual walk. We practice prayer, study, and action. We also meet in larger, pot-luck fed occasions called Ultreyas, meaning “to go further”.

The Cursillo Movement‘s goal is to share the essence of being a Christian and to gradually transform our environments from within. At home, work and play we offer the testimony of friendship.

Cursillo is a short 3-day course in Christianity that helped us both grow in our faith and experience the love of God. 


It starts with a weekend retreat but its purpose is to encourage us to nourish our relationship with the Lord by piety study and action for the rest of our lives.


This includes joining the larger Cursillo  Community and meeting in small groups. We have been surrounded by others who share these goals and serve as role models and Confidants.


We are grateful for being part of the Cursillo movement for the last 18 years and would love to answer any questions you have.
