Cursillo Weekend #147 – “Walk on Water”

February 16 - February 19

Dear Fellow Cursillistas,

I’m thrilled that God has called me to be the Rector of Cursillo #147. My family and I worship at Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota. Cursillo has played an important role in shaping my faith and strengthening my relationship with Jesus Christ. I made my Cursillo in 2011 on Cursillo #122 in the Diocese of Southwest Florida. What an incredible weekend! Since then, I have been blessed to serve God on several Cursillo Teams. For me, every Cursillo weekend is a powerful one. I’m always amazed at God’s transforming love that He pours out onto the Pilgrims each weekend.  Many, myself included, leave Cursillo on Sunday afternoon changed forever.

Please prayerfully consider joining me on Cursillo #147 (February 16 -19 2023). The weekend theme is “Walk On Water” based on Matthew 14: 22-33. I have always loved the image of Peter jumping out of the boat and walking on the water towards Jesus. Peter is completely focused on Jesus after he hears Jesus say “Yes, come”.  Throughout our lives we face a similar choice, let doubt and fear keep us rooted in “what might have been” or “take courage!” and live wholeheartedly a life centered on our Lord Jesus Christ. To me, the Cursillo ministry is all about God equipping each of us to answer His call to “come”. All of us can courageously get out of our own boat and begin our personal walk on the water towards Jesus. All we have to do is keep our eyes fixed on Him and walk on faith not sight. Go ahead and take that first step and let God do the rest.

I’m looking forward to see how God’s hand will shape the Cursillo #147 Pilgrims and Team. If you feel called to be part of the February weekend, please complete the Team application and sent to me at the address below. Also let’s make sure to pray for the Pilgrims of Cursillo #147 to hear God’s voice calling them to “Come!”

DeColores,
