After the three day weekend, we are called to live our “4th Day”, the rest of our lives, through a life of friendship and love with our neighbors and God. Our Cursillo activities serve to support and sustain us in our relationship with Christ and to foster a stronger sense of Christian community.

Finally Here - Announcing The Friends of Marin Cursillo Pledge
I guess we could say since Marin Cursillo’s first Weekend in 1962, we have been searching and praying for a permanent and easy way to sustain Cursillo from year to year. With the advent of technology and our new website – “The time has fully come”.
Our ministry has transformed and renewed the lives of many Christians in Marin and inspired countless acts of piety, study and action. We are able to provide below cost weekends mainly through donations and fundraisers with the participation of many of you.
Click here – or Go to the “Donation” drop down menu and find the Friends of Marin Cursillo Pledge section. It is very easy to navigate and our hope is many will support our common mission by selecting a donation of $5, $10 or more per month. If we all donate a little, we will gather much. I look at it as “doing something eternal” – how often do you get to do something like that?

Advent and Reflections Concert
Doug’s & Dana’s music has been such a beautiful and meaningful part of many of the Marin and Sonoma Cursillo Weekends. Here’s an opportunity to enjoy them (& James) again in their Advent Concerts. This event is free but donations are accepted. And admittedly, this poster is not easy to read, so see the details in our View Upcoming Events.
Thank you to all who attended and helped with our annual Halloween Bash, it was a great success. Below are just a few images from the event. What a group!
North California Wildfire - Angela Center Update
Father Brian asked us to share some details of the fire in Santa Rosa: While our property sustained significant damage, we are especially grateful no one was injured. Angela Center, a retreat center and site of the administration offices, records etc. for the Western Province of the Ursuline Sisters, is a total loss. Two residences, a section of classrooms, the gym, and pool house of the school are also leveled. We are very fortunate that the main administration building of the school is OK. The convent, used by the retreat center, sustained some damage to a guest house attached to the convent chapel. There is substantial smoke damage etc. to the inside of these buildings. The surrounding property, shared by Cardinal Newman and St. Rose Parish, and ours needs significant work to be cleared and made safe for access. Limited access is now in place and our buildings do not have electricity and water. It will be a day by day process. We appreciate your prayers and especially ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the decisions that are forthcoming. We pray with and for our neighbors and all the people in Santa Rosa who have lost their homes and livelihood and with whom we share in this devastating loss. - Sister Jeanette, OSU.
