Cursillo is a short-course Catholic experience held over three days. The three-day live-in experience focuses on a series of talks each followed by discussion, and operates in three stages: Precursillo, Cursillo Weekend and Post Cursillo.

The aim of the Cursillo weekend is to provide an opportunity for men and women, both lay and religious, to reflect on what is fundamental to Christian living. It represents an opportunity to grow, in an atmosphere of friendship and joy.

Cursillo is active in the Maitland-Newcastle Diocese. Cursillo Weekends are usually held once a year. 

Monthly gatherings for all Cursillistas are held on the last Friday of the month at 7.30 pm, typically in a meeting room at the back of Sacred Heart Cathedral at Hamilton. At times these gatherings are held in other parts of the diocese namely Forster, Raymond Terrace, East Maitland and Old Bar.
