PRAY THE ROSARY!!
Have you been troubled by the apparent loss of a just and moral society, or perhaps, some suffering in your family and wanted to help but did not know how? If you are praying the rosary, then you are already helping!
Sr. Lucy of Fatima said the following in 2002 before her death; “The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Rosary, to such an extent that there is NO problem, no matter how difficult it is, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, or even the life of peoples and nations that cannot be solved by the Rosary. There is NO problem, I tell you no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary” - Sr. Lucy of Fatima.

UPCOMING CURSILLO WEEKENDS
What is Cursillo? Cursillo is the abbreviated name for “Cursillos de Christiandad” which translates from its Spanish origins to “short course in Christianity.” The Cursillo Movement is a lay movement within the Catholic Church that shares the fundamentals of being a Christian as an individual and as a community. The Cursillo helps the person discover and fulfill their personal vocation as a layperson while promoting groups of Christians who” leaven their environments” with the Gospel. In other words, by living a fully Christian life, we bring Christ to others in our everyday settings of home, work, and daily activity. The Cursillo provides a method and a technique to provide each of us with the tools, the mentality, the strength, and the support to make this natural type of evangelization. If you are interested in participating in a Cursillo weekend, please go to https://cursillo-cicc.org/what-is-cursillo

Coming from a Catholic-Christian perspective, the group walks with participants to process their experience, tell their story, seek God in the midst of suffering, and find a home in the Church. Group leaders are peers who have gone through the process of divorce and have made progress on their road to healing.
