Cursillo, founded in the 1940s in Spain, is a worldwide movement of the Catholic Church with Papal approval by the Holy Father, Pope Paul VI. It consists of proclaiming the best news of the best reality: that God, in Christ, loves us. Communicated by the best means, which is friendship towards the best of each one, which is his being person and his capacity of Conviction, Decision, and Constancy. The movement develops in adult Christians a consciousness of their power and mission to become leaders in their work of Christian renewal and to sustain them as they provide a Christian leaven in civic, social, and economic life.

We are a Community with the mission to bring Catholic Christians, men, women, lay and religious, to a deeper understanding of their vocation in Christ, the Church and the world. We seek to grow in what God calls each of us to be, as well as to dedicate ourselves in service to His Holy Church.
Can You Imagine Such An Invitation?
Under the Mantle of Our Blessed Mother and faithfully following Her example of Virtue, we commit our lives to Jesus Christ, Our Lord, through the workings of the Holy Spirit. We also have a loyal submission to our Holy Father, the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, and we are under our Local Ordinate, Bishop John Noonan.
We live by a Rule of Life of: Holiness, Obedience and Humble Service, with great Joy!
As a Charismatic ministry our primary charisms are Spiritual Direction and Healing Prayer. Spiritual Direction, through which an ever-deepening friendship with our Lord, heals and shapes us in our life, and the beautiful and powerful Ignatian form of prayer applied to Scripture.

Small Christian Communities
Small Christian Communities (SCC) provide the opportunity for individuals to meet and connect on a more personal basis with fellow parishioners in our large parish community.
We are small, faith-sharing communities made up of 8-12 fellow parishioners focusing on our personal faith journey as it relates to the upcoming Sunday’s liturgical readings with an emphasis on the Gospel message. Through Prayer, Gospel Reflection, Faith Sharing and Social Time, we bond as fellow Christians and parishioners.
SCC is not a Bible study, but, by sharing our faith journey we develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and open our hearts to the power of the Holy Spirit. In so doing, we enrich our spiritual lives and stay “Christ Centered”.
