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.

Church Representatives Forum
Some of the most important members of Marin Cursillo, our Church Representatives, met in late January to discuss their successes and challenges. Fleta Matthews, the Secretariat committee chair, led discussion on various ways to spread the news about upcoming weekends and support the potential candidates. Two topics getting the most enthusiastic attention were talking with pastors and recruiting men. Many tools were identified, including talking points for meeting with pastors, and a full roster of the cursillistas for each church. And when it comes to encouraging men…. Larry Mazzotta had searched Christian sites on the internet and presented 5 points worthy of consideration. Click here for details.
Almost 80% of the Church Reps attended! Back Row: Tom Gannon, Ron Leach, Tom Brawley, Susan Fischer, Bettye Kray, Cathy Cunningham, Fleta Matthews, Peggy Pugh, Jim Matthew. Front Row: Richard Olive, Mike Ardito, Tom Nelson, Jean Nelson, Helga May, Mary Bartunek, Anna Villalon.
For Marin Cursillistas
Announcing our Ultreya gathering of all Marin Cursillistas. Mark your calendars for March 29 at 6:30 PM (St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, San Rafael). An Ultreya is a Spanish word derived from the Latin term meaning Onward! It is a time to check in with the friends we’ve made on weekends and at 4th days. It serves to support and sustain us in our relationship with Christ and to foster a stronger sense of Christian community. Our theme for this Ultreya is Go Forth – Walking by Faith simply meaning how will we continue our faith journey with regards to individual support systems and community outreach.
We are so close to meeting the quota for submitting an order.
