DFW Cursillio:

The DFW Cursillo community is holding a witness talk and small group sharing event hosted by the Church of the Holy Comforter, Cleburne on Saturday May 14. The gathering, known as an Ultreya (which is Spanish for “onward!”) is open to all and is held to encourage & strengthen our walk with Christ.  Cursillo’s pillars are piety, study and action, and, “Make a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ”. Since the next Cursillo at Camp Crucis will be in October, please use this chance to find out more about this renewal movement within the Church. The Ultreya starts with a potluck at 12 noon and ends around 2:00 p.m. (bring your favorite dish). The address is:  209 E Wardville St, Cleburne, TX, 76031.  Email or call Kyle Spradley with ANY questions.  kylespradley@gmail.com  972-523-1109.
