Rally Day: Bee There

Beckwith Camp and Conference Center
Cursillo is a retreat weekend for members of the Episcopal faith to help them grow in their calling to be Christian Leaders. Their leadership skills may be exercised in work situations, in the family, in social life, leisure activities, and
within the Church. The retreat weekend is put together by volunteers from all over the diocese, and the cost is covered by generous donations from the members of the Cursillo family. If you want to attend or if you need more information please call the Cathedral office or go to www.coastalpilgrims.com.
If you are a visitor, we welcome you to complete the visitor card in the cardholder in the pew or you can "like" the Christ Church Cathedral Facebook page and send us your contact information.
Each Sunday two vestry members are designated as greeters. They are on the front porch before the service and near the back doors at the end of the service. They are prepared to assist visitors in any way, and to answer all questions.
