Cursillo Weekends are an exciting, long weekend for Christian adults held at beautiful Camp St. Christopher in Seabrook Island, SC. There are usually about 30 team members serving on a Cursillo Weekend. These weekends are packed with music, fellowship, teaching, worship, great food and other wonderful surprises. It is often a life-changing event for participants and those who “make their Cursillo” are eligible to serve on future Cursillo weekends.
Cursillo is a laity-driven ministry of the Episcopal church. The program is administered and run by the laity. The priests are included in the program because of their special skills and counseling.
The initial contact with Cursillo is through a person who has previously been to the weekend. Once the prospect has indicated that they wish to become part of the program, they are scheduled to attend a weekend. This weekend is a short course in Christianity. There they will participate through listening to talks, singing, church, and surprises.
While the weekend is the most obvious event in the Cursillo movement, it is not the most important aspect of Cursillo. The 4th day, or rest of your life, is what the weekend points to. Cursillo teaches how you should live your life as a Christian.
The Cursillo movement depends on accountability. To achieve this, the Cursillista (one who has completed a weekend) is encouraged to join a reunion group and follow the 3 foundations of Cursillo. These are piety, study, and action. In the reunion group, the Cursillista will share their walk with other Cursillistas. A person wishing to join the process may, at their discretion after receiving an invitation, join a reunion group prior to attending the weekend. For more information on Cursillo, please contact
