Beyond the 4th Day... 

On this page, we commemorate our Cursillista brothers and sisters who have reached heaven...

In the words of St. Paul (Patron of Cursillo), I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. From now on a merited crown awaits me; on that day the Lord, just judge that he is, will award it to me-and not only to me, but to all who have looked for his appearing with eager longing. (2 Timothy 4:7-8)

Please feel free to send us 
a photo and a brief write-up
about our fellow Cursillistas who are 
now praying for us in heaven.



Merle Greenwald Anderson... 

Merle is lovingly remembered by fellow Cursillistas as the First Lady of the Metuchen Cursillo Movement.  She made her Cursillo in the Diocese of Trenton, Women's Cursillo #12.  She was a parishioner of St. Bernard's of Clairveaux, Bridgewater.  When she passed away in November 2009 at the age of 82, her pastor said of Merle in their church bulletin, "Wife to our Deacon Paul Anderson, mother of 7, grandmother of 14, faithful steward of her many gifts, Merle served God through the people of St. Bernard in many ways.  As a Eucharistic Minister, her devotion to the Blessed Sacrament was evident and awe-inspiring.  As the matriarch of the Anderson family she was a loving support to Paul in his ministry and to her children in every aspect of their lives and their faith...  Merle was an inspiration.  Her strength, her joy in life and faith, and her acceptance of God's will is something we can all strive toward and her gentleness was a comfort to all fortunate enough to know and share faith with her." *
