As Thanksgiving approaches, it is a time to reflect on the gifts we have enjoyed during the past year while we look to the future.  My life is blessed each of you, my Trenton Cursillo family.  I am truly grateful for each and every one of you; without you all there is no Trenton Cursillo.  Thank you for your prayers and your willingness to serve.  

Each of us, during our Cursillo encounters heard the words, "Christ is counting on you." To which we replied, "I am counting on Christ."  As Christians, we are other Christs, so not only do we rely on our Lord and Savior but each other (other Christs).  Thank you for being there, sharing your talents and your heart.  

We have an awesome community, that comes together in prayer when someone needs it. A community that comes together in celebration, but also comes together to be strength for those who need to be lifted up.  Please continue to pray for our movement. God bless and keep you and may you all have awesome Thanksgiving.

SCHOOL OF LEADERS by Mary Weis, Assistant Lay Director

"Our School of Leaders today was exceptional! Father Jay gave us a talk about how to live our Fourth Day in the jubilee year of Mercy and urged us to read the pope's bull on declaring 2016 the Year of Mercy. We are called to evangelize, not alone, not only with Jesus, but with our faith community. All of this on his very birthday! God bless Father Jay! 

We also took time to memorialize our "spiritual ancestors" who have helped us to live our Fourth Day by sending them messages of love.
Please join us December 19 for a Day of Reflection when we can prepare for the coming of Christ during the Advent season, 9 to 1pm."
