Happening #157 will take place at St. John's in McAllen.

Happenings are spiritual renewal weekends for older high school students, led by their peers. Any student in the 10th grade through 12th grade can attend. A small number of adults may also attend. Weekends tend to fill quickly, so don't delay! You will receive detailed information about the weekend via email after you register. Each Happening begins Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. sharp, and wraps up around 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. It is a lock-in, so prepare to stay the entire weekend.

The registration cost is $60, and a deposit must be paid to confirm your registration. Scholarships are available. Please email the Happening Advisory Board Chair, at dwtxhappening@gmail.com, for scholarship information or other questions.

Cursillo

Cursillo #294

Suggested Bulletin Text

Make plans to attend the next Cursilo at Camp Capers in November. Join James Bangert from St. John's, New Braunfels, lay rector and Arden McLean from St. George, San Antonio, assistant rectora, for Cursillo #294 for a weekend of study, reflection, fellowship, and worship. Cursillo #294 will be held  November 7 - 10, 2024 at Camp Capers. Spiritual Directors will be the Revs. Ripp Hardaway from St. John's, New Braunfels and Chris Roque from Calvary, Menard.

Cursillo (a Spanish word meaning "little course") gives church members the tools and "rules of life" to enthusiastically share the joys of knowing Christ with others in their everyday environments. Cursillo is patterned on Jesus' own example. He searched out and called groups of potential leaders, trained them and sent them out to bring the world to Him.
