A Spiritual Retreat for Lay and Clergy September 20-22
Episcopal Cursillo Ministry

The Episcopal Cursillo Weekend includes a time to experience living in a supportive Christian community that includes fifteen talks, five meditations and a Eucharist every day.  Cursillo Weekend is not a retreat. It is an opportunity to meet clergy and laity seeking to strengthen our faith. It provides an environment to experience the reality of the gift of God's love through shared prayer, individual meditation, worship, study, fellowship, laughter, tears, and unconditional love.   
Please contact Fr. David if you have questions or would like to participate.
