Who are we?
We are a group of people that follow Christ, study his teachings and seek to love one another as He loves us. We are known as either Pilgrimage or Presbyterian Cursillo, and we are a non-profit organization in the USA with 22 local communities across 14 states.
The movement originated in Spain and has spread internationally and follows reformed tradition. As such, all are welcome to learn more about and to deepen their faith journey with Christ.
Your journey with us begins with a weekend of spiritual growth, renewal, and nurture that is unlike any other retreat; one that can continue to enrich your life every day thereafter. You need not be a Presbyterian to attend. You only need to be a Christian and called to come to a weekend where you may never again feel so loved, laugh so hard, develop such deep relationships and be so inspired.
Presbyterian Pilgrimage-Cursillo welcomes Christians of all ages. The week is designed to deepen and renew faith and to inspire ways to continue in a deeper walk in their home church.
- God is one being in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
- All good and power emanate from God, the creator and redeemer
- Original sin (the fall) broke our connection to God
- God restored our connection by sacrificing His only Son
- Thus, God’s ultimate sacrifice redeemed all creation; we only need accept
- In grateful response, we continually seek to live in right relationship
- All who accept God’s grace as their personal Lord and Savior are invited

What People Say
“Twelve years ago I attended a weekend. I thought it was to just meet some people and make a few new friends. Little did I know that God had called me to a mountain top experience with Him to prepare me to hear His call to do His work in the “valleys” of life. My only regret is that I didn’t go sooner.“
– Sissy Tubb, Oklahoma Presbyterian Pilgrimage
“I was trying to describe the weekend yesterday but just really could not talk about it yet. I was and am so touched. There was more love … than I have experienced in my lifetime, through each and every experience of the weekend and through every staff person and participant. It is hard to believe that I could be called to attend such a weekend; how could I be worthy and how could Jesus love me this much? To God be the Glory!”
