Cursillo is Spanish for 'short course.'

A Cursillo weekend could be described as a 'short course in Christian living,' though it's a lot more fun than many courses a person might take!

The Edmonton Diocese has an active Cursillo group which hosts annual Cursillo weekends and monthly Cursillo gatherings called 'Ultreyas.'

The next co-ed Cursillo weekend, a three-day course on Christian Living, will be held November 10-12, 2017, at Star of the North Retreat Centre in St. Albert. 

Churches interested in a talk on Cursillo are invited to please contact Brian Richardson at This presentation could be in place of a sermon or brief talk at any time.
