Mission of the 
Franciscan Friars of the Renewal 

To Live the Holy Gospel

“The primary mission of our community is a wholehearted embracing of Jesus Christ and our Holy Father St. Francis. Through our commitment to prayer and contemplation, the study of Sacred Scripture, and our fidelity to the Church and the Sacraments, our fraternal life, and our generous service to others, especially the poor, we receive nourishment necessary to live out our lives as sons of St. Francis in the Capuchin tradition.” (CFR Constitutions)

Dear Cursillistas and friends,  

The Metuchen Cursillo Movement’s 9th Annual Encounter With Christ was held on Saturday, June 9, 2018.

We were blessed to once again have Fr. Glenn Sudano, CFR of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (St. Joseph Friary, New York , NY) as the keynote speaker.  He was joined by Deacon Sal Bonfiglio, OFS (Secular Franciscan Order) who opened the event with his presentation.  

This special event was held on the Feast Day of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The theme for the Encounter was "Seek Me With All Your Heart" (Jeremiah 29:13).

In addition to the presentations which inspired us to draw closer to God through Mary, attendees were given the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation as well as join in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The event concluded with Fr. Glenn celebrating Mass with Dcn. Sal assisting, with music led by Cursillista Kathy Wasilewski. During the Mass, Anthony Marinelli, OFS commemorated the 50th anniversary of his profession with a special celebration and renewal of his vows.

Many thanks to all those who helped to make this event such a success. We also offer our thanks to all those who attended, and to those who offered up such generous donations to support the Metuchen Cursillo Movement.  A great big Thank You to all of you!

Stay tuned for details on the 10th Annual Cursillo Encounter in 2019! 

De Colores,  

Marianne Kharé and Regina Neri
