Cursillo is a movement within the Anglican Church in Canada.
Participants become involved by first attending a weekend residential program. A series of talks given by clergy and lay people, discussion in small groups, worship and music all contribute to guiding a participant to formulate their own ideal in their faith lives.
Participants are most often motivated to “follow Christ passionately,” meaning that they are fully engaged in a Christian lifestyle, willing to commit time and effort to the work of Christ. Spiritual discipline is encouraged. Honesty and integrity in interpersonal interaction is encouraged such that participants feel support in the learning and action they take in their faith lives.
Many embrace increased generosity and have a stronger sense of stewardship in their roles as church members and members of society in general. Often the ideals to which they aspire lead to increased awareness and involvement in social justice making and in developing their leadership skills.
