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!

christmas donation tree thermometer 2016Attention Cursillistas! Announcing our 31 Days of Christmas Match!

Central Indiana Cursillo has a Christmas Contribution goal of $4,000.00

Again this year, we have several anonymous Cursillistas who stated that they would pledge together $1000.00 if another $3000.00 of the $4000.00 was donated to the Central Indiana Cursillo Movement by December 31, 2016. This is just 30 donations of $100.00!! We can do this! Also, on any new monthly reoccurring credit card contributions, the entire year’s contribution will be added to this goal. You can contribute easily by going to our web site that can now receive credit cards and this method is very user-friendly.

Please click here and make a donation and state "Christmas Match" in the comments box on the credit card billing section.

If you would like to send a check instead of using a credit card, please make it payable to "CICC" and send it to our Treasurer:Marty Van der Burgt at 3020 Dorothy Lane, Richmond, IN. 47374

You will be helping the CICC to continue to host Cursillo weekends by helping to grow needed funds for the expense of the supplies of Cursillo information packets, food, toiletries, note taking materials, up-keep of the weekend site, and so much more. You will be helping others to attend the weekends when they hear the call of the Holy Spirit but are unable to pay to attend the Cursillo Movement's life changing weekends.

Of course, as part of your year - end charitable giving, please pray and consider donating any amount to CICC. You would be able to claim it on your taxes as a charitable donation. Please know that Cursillo is a 501(c)(3) organization, and all donations over $250 will receive a written acknowledgment for your tax purposes. Your contributions are essential to the CICC continuing ministry.

“Remember, Christ is counting on YOU! "


The Central Indiana Secretariat would like to thank you for your support and wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
