The fee to attend a Cursillo is $165 effective January 1, 2020. A “Gift of Cursillo” scholarship is available that will pay $80 towards the fee.

No mask or vaccination is required of participants. However, because of that, we are requiring a COVID test be done within 48 hours of the start of the Cursillo weekend. A COVID screening questionnaire will be sent along with the acceptance letter.

Please use the 01-01-2020 version of the candidate application. Also download and submit the Sponsor Form along with the candidate application.  All candidates must be sponsored by someone who has already attended a Cursillo weekend.

Candidate Application

This document includes the sponsor responsibilities and the sponsor portion of the candidate application. The Sponsor Form must be sent in with the Candidate application. Please use Sponsor Form version dated 05-12-2020 and dispose of older versions.

Sponsor Form

The cut-off to submit candidate applications is the Sunday prior to the start of that weekend.

Due to possible postal mail delays, if you are submitting a candidate application within three weeks of the Cursillo weekend to which they are applying, please email the application and sponsor form (scan it or take photo of it) to: or fax to 217-978-4133. Then mail the original signed candidate application, sponsor form and deposit as indicated on the application.
