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.
News This Month
Hear all the details-to-date on the 2018 weekends. Eat great food; enjoy the comradery and the music! Larry Mazzotta will tell us about the summer team research on enhancing our candidate recruitment strategies.
As you know, in 2017 we saw an upturn in the number of individuals who accepted our invitation to attend a Cursillo and meet Christ amongst our humble assembly. The team realized the methods used by some churches had resulted in greater success. How can we leverage these successes to inspire many more Christians in Marin to participate? For 2018, we are hoping to see enough interested individuals to host 2 sets of Cursillo Weekends. At the upcoming Ultreya evening, the team will talk about their findings and recommendations.
Archbishop Cardileone appoints a new Roman Catholic Spiritual Director to Cursillo
From Larry and Ron:
I am forwarding the announcement by Jacque Grillo that Fr. Martin Mager has been appointed the Catholic liaison priest from the Archdiocese to Cursillo, replacing Msgr. Mickey McCormick who is in failing health. Also included is the letter from the General Secretariat to Marin Cursillo, the letter to the Archbishop as well as his response and a third document outlining the responsibilities of the new liaison.
We are particularly delighted that the Archbishop has selected a priest who is the Headmaster of Woodside Priori - which welcomes students of non-Catholic backgrounds. In doing so, this could be taken as approval of our ecumenical approach to Cursillo. Fr. Mager has been the Catholic Spirit for several San Francisco women's weekends, so he is keenly aware of the program!

Our Extended Community
From Ron: In June, Larry, Jim Matthews and I visited the Redwood Empire Cursillo meeting in Santa Rosa to thank them for all their help on the last weekends. They were phenomenal in all their behind-the-scenes and upfront help. We brought them some sandwiches for their board meeting and then stayed for their general meeting. They are a great group and we plan to stay in contact with them in the future.
