Stages of Cursillo

Group Reunions

To support us in our ‘Fourth Day’ small groups of Cursillistas (pronounced as Cur-see-is-tas and meaning a member of Cursillo) come together on a regular basis to share their Christian life. Anybody is most welcome to join a Reunion even before you come a member of Cursillo.


To support us even further, members of Cursillo come together for a larger meeting to share with one another as members together, so that we can receive strength to go onwards in the service of Christ and His Church.
