cursillo logo colorWelcome to the Central Indiana Cursillo Center Website!

The Cursillo is a "short course" in Christianity where a method of Piety, Study and Action is lived in order to evangelize the world!

Please look around and check out all the opportunities to engage with our movement.

For the Existing Cursillista, this site will serve as a focal point for many resources in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and the diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana to help you continue your "Fourth Day".

For the New Cursillista, the site will serve as a way to find a group, volunteer forspecial events, connect with your parish coordinator and be informed of many Cursillo happenings on our calendar.

For the person who is just visiting and inquisitive about the Cursillo movement, this site will provide you a wide variety of information in the form of audios, videos, and posts about living a Catholic life fully and completely by integrating Piety, Study and Action in all your environments.

So ask and you shall receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened unto to you.

May God continue to bless you in your journey of knowing Him, trusting Him and sharing His love to the world!

christmas donation tree thermometer2018 Year-End Campaign - We're Almost Halfway There!

We had another great week for giving as we have received $3,053 in donations! Let's continue to push it forward so we can reach our goal! And remember, during the month of December where each donation will be matched dollar for dollar!

The mission and ministry of Cursillo in Central Indiana are only made possible by our community of members. Our wonderful story and model of mission – make a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ – is only possible with your commitment to foster piety, study, and action in the Church.

I am profoundly grateful for the support so many of you have shown to Cursillo in the past, and I invite you to make your impact on Cursillo this year with a gift to our CICC 2018 Campaign. Your generosity helps CICC continue to inspire the next generation of active Cursillistas, provide spiritual development and resources for our members, and ensure that Cursillo Weekends will continue to make a difference in our parishes and faith communities.

As we kick off this year’s annual appeal, our goal for the CICC 2018 Campaign is to raise $7,500 and increase the participation of our membership in the annual campaign. For CICC to grow its mission and ministry, and to cover the increased costs associated with our new retreat facility and kitchen rental while keeping weekend fees low, it’s important for everyone to show support in some way – please prayerfully consider what that means for you! I encourage you to make your gift to the CICC 2018 Campaign today by giving online by clicking here or sending a check or money order to my home address.

As an added bonus, donations this month will be matched, dollar for dollar, by an anonymous donor!!
