Welcome 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 for special 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!
