The theme of the Encounter is "Our Lady of Guadalupe - Star of the New Evangelization".
Bishop James Checchio will be consecrating the Diocese of Metuchen to
Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12, 2019 for the purpose of a New
Evangelization. In his letter announcing the consecration, Bishop
Checchio wrote that he was doing so with a particular expectation:
"namely, that after having been renewed and awakened in faith, that
each and every heart in our parishes would be on fire for her Son,
Jesus Christ. And, in doing so, that a new great wave of evangelization
would spring from our parishes and institutions."
This year, parishes within the diocese will be hosting "The Awakening",
an event that will help to prepare their parishioners for the
consecration. The Metuchen Cursillo Movement is pleased to sponsor this
event for Mary, Mother of God Church in conjunction with the Cursillo
"Join us for this multi-parish event as the Cursillo Movement kicks off a year of preparation that will
culminate in December when the entire Diocese of Metuchen is consecrated to Our Lady of Guadalupe. This will truly be
an inspiring day of prayer, song and encouragement as we seek to encounter Christ in our daily lives through the
invocation of the Blessed Mother." Fr. John Rozembajgier- Pastor, Mary, Mother of God Church
In Cursillo, our motto is "Make a Friend, Be a Friend, Bring that Friend to Christ". We embrace the opportunity
