Cursillo Movement 

 Dear Fellow Pilgrims,

As we approach our Spring Weekends for men's 101 & Women's 101, we also are entering the wonderful season of Lent in our Church.  I say wonderful, because this season, Like Advent, gives us a reason to shake off our inadvertent complacencies towards our religion and start to again really think about what our faith means to us and how we should respond.

Lent does take us up to the most important spiritual time of our church year – Easter!  It is more important than Christmas (though I take nothing away from the solemn reason for Christmas) because without Easter and what Christ did for us in His passion, we would be nothing.

Participation in Lent takes on a different meaning for each of us.  Some of us give up things; some of us do extra things.  I prefer a little of both, focusing on the latter.  I believe it is much harder and more valuable to step my outward Christian Action in practicing a heartier approach to the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy than to give up eating coneys at Skyline, but it is certainly for me a constant reminder of my intention to “fast” if I do end up craving those delectable chili dogs from time to time.

Another thought:

If you are like me, your mind wanders at Mass. And sometimes it is hard to concentrate when praying.  Well, one time it often becomes hard to concentrate for me is during the Our Father.  I've prayed this prayer hundreds of times, and my mind often wanders due to the familiarity of the words, I guess.  But at Mass when I join in the wonderful parish tradition of holding hands during this most special prayer, I often encounter another distraction.

Doggonnit, the minute I join hands with those on each side (family), I invariably need to itch or scratch something or somewhere – my elbow, my eyebrow, my neck – something.  It's amazingly automatic with me.  And I feel like I should be able to quell the feeling at least until the end of the prayer.  Ever happen to you? 

It takes on a whole new meaning to me during Lent.  Imagine the unimaginable that Jesus must have experienced as He was restrained up on that cross.  The pain must have been unbearable.  What if He had the same need to scratch an itch?

Now, when I hold hands with those next to me during the Our Father, I will always remember what my savior did for me when I feel that inevitable need to scratch that itch.

Just an unusual thought.

Wishing you a worthwhile Lent and a Glorious Eastertime

Jesus said, "not by bread alone shall man live, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God".  

Matthew 4:4


  1. In this season of thanksgiving,
  2. and in this land of very much abundance,
  3. let us remember to listen to the Word of God (Jesus)
  4. and to be his hands and feet to those in need... 

Hello fellow pilgrims,


    We have just concluded two very important and successful weekends this Fall.  Important because they were our 100th Men's and 100th Women's weekends, and successful because the Holy Spirit helped us deliver the Cursillo method of living to 42 men & women in a wonderfully spiritual way.  Many thanks to Marc Johannemann and Nancy Johnson and their respective teams for jobs well done.  Their personal reflection on their weekends is elsewhere in this newsletter.


    Each Sunday the pastor at my parish, Fr. John Sterling, does 2 things that I would like to emulate here.  First, at the beginning of his homily, he asks each of us to take a moment of quiet prayer and to just pray for each other in the pews.  Too often, I believe, we neglect to remember to pray for those who are around us and close to us.  So when you get a moment, take a quiet moment of prayer and pray for your fellow Cursillistas – maybe those who were on the same weekend you were on, whenever that was. 

And in addition, remember those who might be in most need of assistance at this time – those who are suffering for any reason.


    The second thing he does each week is he specifically calls out an example of stewardship that was visible and evident in our parish in the previous week.  Maybe it was someone who did a specific or special deed in the parish, maybe someone who assisted in a unique way during a funeral, or just some observed random act of kindness to him or the parish in general.


It caused me to realize that there were many, many random acts of kindness, acts of service, prayers and devotions and other acts of love in these past 2 weekends.  The teams can surely attest to that.  And  in the true Christian spirit, they mostly went unnoticed and unrewarded.  The amount of effort to put on these weekends is amazing – not just by the Pre-Cursillo and Cursillo teams, but by many un-sung Cursillista heroes who dedicate so much time and energy on behalf of Cursillo.These people truly are the hands and feet of Jesus, and I am in awe of them and also am blessed by their efforts.


    As we enter this upcoming holy season of Advent and Christmas, let us take time to be thankful of not only what we have, but who we have - family, friends and each other.  Give the gift of love.

    For one year we as a team prepared to present the weekend to a group of candidates who were still unknown to us.  The year went by so quickly and without any major setbacks.


    But then came time for the weekend to begin.  We met with the staff at St. Anne's and our runners and were presented with the information that there was no hot water and the weekend may have to be cancelled.  Add to this the fact that one of our spiritual directors would not be able to be there until late Friday evening and it was looking bleak.  But the Holy Spirit had different plans and sent to us a group of candidates that were ready and open to the weekend.  Friday morning as we began the weekend, we  normally have to pull out candidates to take charge of taking notes and being presenters, but not with this group.  The candidates we open and ready to participate fully and were moving forward at a rapid pace.


    This could have been one of the worst weekends in Covington Cursillo history, but it was not, because the Holy Spirit send us men who were open and ready to hear and receive the Word.

What started out as a weekend to dread turned into a weekend that went by so quickly that if you blinked, you missed it.  To a man, both the team and the candidates experienced a true metanoia during weekend 100.


    I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, palanca and prayers during the weekend.  Without you it would not have been possible.



De Colores,

Marc Johannemann

Coordinator, Men's Weekend 100

  To sum up Women's Cursillo 100 is easy - The Holy Spirit ran the weekend! 


    As a Team we surrendered ourselves to be of maximum service to God and He stepped in and led.  During our short course we have looked over the rainbow with two want-a-bees, a weatherman (Fr. Matt), and a garbage man (Deacon Hudson) leading us to be messengers of the Gospel. We don't want to be ants “Floating on a Log” when our destination is Heaven and we need to bring as many people as possible with us. We are vessels carrying Christ to others, so we can't be lazy Theologians in lazy boy recliners. 


    We learned through laughter and tears that our life as a Catholic is important because we are Christ's hands and feet.  We belong to Him and He loves us dearly.  The candidates received it ALL in their hearts and souls, and they will “bloom where they are planted”. 


    At the closing we could feel the power of the Holy Spirit in the Chapel.  Then as each woman spoke of her experience, we as a community knew deep in our hearts Cursillo really does change lives and this is a powerful movement in the church! To be so blessed to walk this journey with the Team and Candidates that GOD CALLED was a true GIFT FROM GOD and I will be forever grateful.  Our Focus is Christ through the Cursillo Method!!!
