Christchurch Men's 4, St. Columba's Table..... I am Pihopa Rawiri, Bishop David from the Diocese of Waiapu.  I am completely and utterly delighted that Cursillo has been gifted to the Diocese of Waiapu by the Dioceses of Wellington and Waikato-Taranaki.  Equally, I am exceedingly thankful as I watch the number of Cursillistas increase as Cursillo grows throughout this place of "abundant waters."

We praise God for calling Cursillistas to serve on C2 team.

Registrations are open. Lay Directors Sybil and Jim Gibson have formed their team. They are committed and enthusiastic. Can we attract 20 registrations?

Who are you going to bring along to Combined 2? Please pray for these people now, talk to them, companion them… lead them to Cursillo. Do take action … you are the life-blood of Cursillo. You are the ones that will help Cursillo to grow. If you love what Cursillo did for you, make that known to others. They  may want to experience Cursillo for themselves.
