CURSILLO

The Cursillo is a movement of the Church which by means of its own method makes it possible for people to live what is fundamental for being a Christian, and to live it together. It helps people discover and fulfill their personal vocations, and it promotes the creation of core groups of Christians who leaven their environments with the Gospel, helping them to fulfill their baptismal responsibility: to go forth as apostles and proclaim the Good News of Christ. After living a 3-Day Cursillo, the participants are given tools for perseverance: the Group Reunion and the Ultreya. The Group Reunion is a small group of Cursillo friends that meets on a regular basis to share the growth that has taken place within each person. The Ultreya (Spanish word meaning Onward) is the larger Cursillo community. It is the time for the members of the Group Reunions to meet with other Group Reunions. The Ultreya is beneficial in providing the support and encouragement needed to persevere. Meetings: See Parish Bulletin.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION GROUP

Holy Hour with Eucharistic Exposition, Evening Prayer, and Benediction is held on the First Friday.  We seek to foster and encourage devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Eucharistic Holy Hour, ending with Benediction is held each Friday after the 9:00 am Mass.

NEW COVENANT PRAYER GROUP

We invite parishioners to seek a deeper personal relationship with God through communal worship, praise, and song. Through our prayer we intercede for the needs of the parish - both personal and collective. All are welcome to come join us. Meetings: Wednesday mornings from 10:30 am - noon in the Parish Center.
