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.
A Cursillo weekend begins on Thursday evening with registration from 7:30-8:15 pm and culminates on Sunday evening with closing and Mass at 4 pm.
Dates for upcoming Cursillo weekends and Ultreya’s can be found on the Calendar
