Our movement exists so that on judgment day there will be more saints in full communion with our Creator.  We meet to answer the essential question of our Cursillo Movement:  How does my action build God's community?   I invite you to take a moment to reflect on God's action in life so that it may become your action in this life.   Deacon Timothy

Building Christ Together Through Christian Community
... Piety, Study and Action

Welcome to the Catholic Cursillo Movement of the Archdiocese of Washington DC. We greet you as friends on a mutual journey to Our Father. Using the words of our patron saint, St. Paul, "To all God's beloved...who are called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." (Romans: 1, 7), we pray that our website informs, enlightens, and motivates you in Christ.

Cursillo is a worldwide movement of the Roman Catholic Church. Using the tools of piety, study and action, it provides for a three day encounter with self, Christ and each other to become Christian leaders in our environments. Cursillo offers a method to grow in Christian community by sustained sharing, prayer and study in small friendship groups. Friendship groups enrich our lives with piety, grow our understanding of faith in study, and take action to bring others to Christ.

Join us at an Ultreya (gathering of friendship groups) and/or School of Leaders' meeting to share and be Christ with each other. Learn more about our Cursillo Movement and make a friend, be a friend, and help bring that friend to Christ. A list of the Ultreya locations and the meeting schedule may be found here.

"As we follow Christ in this mission to be fishers of men, we must bring men and women out of the sea that is salted with so many forms of alienation and onto the land of life, into the light of God, It really is so: The purpose of our lives is to reveal God to man."
- Pope Benedict's First Papal Homily
