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 11th Annual Encounter With Christ will be held on Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 8:00am to 3:00pm at Mary, Mother of God Parish, 157 S Triangle Rd, Hillsborough Township, NJ 08844. 

One Does Not Live on Bread Alone...
This year's Encounter falls on the first weekend of Lent, 2020. The theme will be "One does not live on bread alone" (Matthew 4:4). As we prepare our hearts during this season of Lent, we will see how Christ used God's Word when He was tempted in the desert (Matthew 4:1-11). We can follow His example and use the Scriptures to strengthen us and bring us closer to God.

Check in 8:00am to 8:30am, then join us in praying the Rosary at 8:30.

Our distinguished speakers will be Fr. Glenn Sudano, CFR of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (St. Joseph Friary, New York, NY) and Deacon Sal Bonfiglio, OFS (Secular Franciscan Order). 

There will be opportunities for reconciliation and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. A light lunch will be served. The event will conclude with celebration of the Mass.
