Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina

About Cursillo

Cursillo is a movement, a method and a ministry.

The key elements of the Episcopal Cursillo Ministry are relationship, evangelism, and reconciliation in the home, the parish, the community, and the world.

Cursillo offers a time to experience living in a supportive Christian community though the Episcopal Cursillo Weekend, following a three-day schedule that begins on Thursday evening and concludes on Sunday. The weekend includes fifteen talks, five meditations and a Eucharist every day. The Episcopal Cursillo Weekend isn't a retreat. It's an opportunity to gather with clergy and laity, seeking to strengthen our faith.

EDUSC Cursillo is guided and empowered by a national ministry, the Episcopal Cursillo Ministry.

Cursillo provides:

  • An environment to experience the reality of God's gift of love through shared prayer, individual meditation, worship, study, fellowship, laughter, tears, and unconditional love
  • An opportunity to grow in faith and in spirituality 
  • Experience with a method involving piety, study, and action to deepen our spiritual journey
  • Tools for bringing Christ into our individual environments
  • A community that supports and encourages us to carry out our Baptismal Vows
