cropped quincy cursillo words 1

Want to deepen your relationship with Christ, but aren't too sure where to start? 

Why not try joining a Cursillo weekend in Quincy, Illinois?

Quincy Cursillo is centered in Quincy, Illinois within the Catholic Diocese of Springfield, Illinois. 

We hosted our first Cursillo in December 1974 and continue to hold eight weekends per year

– four for men and four for women. They are held at the Franciscan Retreat Center

located at 1909 N. 18th Street in Quincy, Illinois.

Cursillo (pronounced kur-see-yo) is a Spanish word meaning “short course”.

During this three-day experience, those attending pray together, celebrate Eucharist,

listen to talks given by priests, religious and laypersons, and share fellowship of Jesus Christ and each other.

Although a Cursillo is not a retreat, its aim is to concentrate on the Person and teachings of Jesus Christ. 

As a Lay Movement, Cursillo gives those who attend a living understanding of basic Christian truths and a desire to serve the Church. 

It also provides a means to continue the Christian formation that begins during the three-day experience.

A Cursillo weekend begins on Thursday evening with candidate registration from 7:30-8:30 pm and

culminates on Sunday evening with closing and Mass  at 4 pm.

Check our Calendar for dates of upcoming Cursillo weekends.

In the three-day weekend of TEC, you can experience being part of a vibrant, loving, and supportive faith community in which the friendship of Jesus Christ becomes a real possibility that makes sense.

TEC is very human. Team members of adults and youth from various walks of life entrust to the participants some of the struggles, joys, and feelings they have experienced in their own lives.  TEC provides a space to reflect upon one’s own ideals, hopes, dreams, and problems; to discover a God that you can believe in ... a Christ you can encounter as risen and alive in your midst.

TEC weekends are held at the Franciscan Retreat Center of Quincy University, 18th & Seminary Road, Quincy, IL  62301.  The weekend begins Saturday morning at 9:30am and ends Monday evening 6:00-6:30pm. Candidates ages 16-21 cost $50.00 and observers ages 22+ cost $100.00.  Anyone of any faith denomination ages 16 and older are welcome to participate.
