The Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. Correctly practiced and overseen the Cursillo Movement can have very positive results in the spiritual revitalization of the world. The Christ-likeness in a few people is contagious. The transference of Christ's values to others in one's family, school, place of business, etc., is the Christianizing of environments the Cursillo promotes. The goal of the movement is that Christ be the prime influence in society. So it is said the PRIMARY OBJECTIVES of the Cursillo Movement are to develop in adult Christians a consciousness of their ability and mission to become leaders in the work of Christian renewal, and to sustain them as they provide a Christian leaven in civic, social and economic life. This "Christianizing of environments" is what the Cursillo movement is about. For more information contact Monica Small at Cursillo@gscceg.org

We gather as a community, to praise God on a onetoone basis, as we are inspired by the Holy Spirit.  Bible study helps us to gain a better understanding of who God is and his role in our lives.   Our group is studying the last couple of chapters in Luke.  Deacon Al Llenos is our Bible study instructor/facilitator.
