St John's Cursillo 

 Cursillo is literally, a "short course in Christianity." Cursillo weekends are offered periodically throughout the year in the Diocese of Birmingham as needed. After attending a Cursillo weekend, Cursillistas are encouraged to meet regularly in small, personal groups ("Grouping") and in larger communities ("Ultreyas") in order to reaffirm their Christian commitment to each other and to grow in friendship with their brothers and sisters in Christ.

 Applications are continuously accepted, so if you are interested in participating, or have a candidate who wishes to participate, please go to the Precursillo page to download/print out a Candidate Application. For more information about Cursillo contact John Simmons, 256-772-8644.
