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 - August 2018
September Secretariat meeting is rescheduled to September 10th due to the Labor Day holiday.
Note From Secretariat
Janie Burtch and Steve Avanzino began their 2-year term as Chair and Vice Chair starting with the August Secretariat meeting.
Janie is a member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in San Rafael and made her Cursillo in 2000. She has been actively involved in Cursillo serving on several teams and 4th Day groups. In 2015, Janie was Rectora of "Guide Us With Your Grace" and described it as "one of the best experiences of my life". Janie has participated on the Secretariat for the past several years and looks forward to further service as an opportunity "to give back and give thanks for all that Cursillo has brought to my life over the past 18 years."
Steve Avanzino is also a member of St. Paul's and made his Cursillo in 1988. Steve has worked many teams in all positions including Rector of "A Brand New Day" in 2015. Steve is no stranger to hard work and, in addition to his weekend participation, has been involved in most of our fund raising efforts and has been active on the Secretariat for several years. When asked why he considered taking on the role of Chair of the Secretariat, Steve responded that he accepted the position "out of love for the movement."

Another Note from the Secretariat!
We’ve been invited to attend the upcoming Redwood Empire Ultreya in Petaluma on September 29th. This is their first Ultreya since the devastating fires, and the Redwood Empire was very supportive of Marin Cursillo when we held our Cursillos in Santa Rosa. See Upcoming Events for details and map.
