The Cursillo Movement is a movement of the Catholic Church. The name Cursillo is Spanish, meaning short course, and is often associated with a 3-Day weekend - which is only one aspect of the Cursillo Movement. The proper name is Cursillo de Cristiandad (short course of Christianity). There is much more to the Cursillo Movement than just a 3-Day weekend. The Cursillo Movement can assist each of us in developing a deeper understanding of what it means to be fully Catholic by being fully Christian.
There is a large and active Cursillo community here on Hilton Head Island and in Bluffton. If you have been on a Cursillo Weekend or are interested in knowing more, please contact the parish office. Monthly Ultreya are held here at Holy Family. DeColores!

Kairos in general means a special time.  Kairos evolved from Cursillo and is an ecumenical ministry designed to establish a strong Christian community among the residents of state and federal correctional institutions.  Kairos serves nine men’s and women’s prisons in South Carolina. Studies have shown a dramatic reduction in the re-incarceration rate among the residents who have experienced Kairos. It is a powerful experience for both volunteers and residents. Experience a monthly reunion with us and try it.

Knights of Columbus:
An Organization of Generations for the Generations to Come.  As a service organization, the Knight of Columbus owes its many achievements to the tireless efforts of those in local councils where the greatest impact is most often witnessed, both by our families and our neighbors. Whether it’s through the support of local athletic programs, sponsoring of special events, or even planning and hosting religious activities, Knights serve as valuable role models for other catholic men, as well as mentors for all our children. Hopefully it is a source of inspiration for the future generations of knights.
