Please pray that Steve Bruce’s spine surgery on 27 January 2016 achieves the goals that his spine doctor has set, that all his doctors, nurses and caregivers are guided by the Holy Spirit in their professional tasks and duties, and that his wife Conni is strengthened with the fullness of grace to provide Steve the homecare that speeds his recovery and does not exhaust her. In Jesus Name we pray.

10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Cathy Lemley will give a technical talk entitled, “Leaders in Cursillo – That Means YOU!” We are all asked to be leaders in Cursillo as we spread the Good News for the Kingdom of God. What are the qualities of a good leader in Cursillo, what are our responsibilities and who are some good role models? Bring your own ideas to share!
10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Group Reunion
11:10 a.m. – 11:50 a.m. Father Tuck Grinnell, spiritual director for Arlington Cursillo, will lead a conversation on Pope Francis’ encyclical ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME (Laudato Si). We will use a couple of paragraphs from the encyclical to get the conversation started.
The rush of the holidays will be upon us soon enough! Let’s take a few hours now to “rest in the Lord” and enjoy our community, our speakers and grow in our faith. I look forward to seeing you there! De colores!
