Magnificat of Broward - Breakfast with Marta Vargas

Saturday, Apr 22, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM - English

Magnificat of Broward, "Handmaids of the Lord," invites you to a breakfast with guest speaker Marta Vargas. It will be on Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Signature Grand located at 6900 State Road 84, Davie, Florida 33317.

Tickets are $25 and include a hot breakfast. Please register by April 12. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Marta Vargas is a singer, songwriter and speaker born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, who also enjoys creating and serving in a multitude of other ways like poetry, painting, photography, and her work in the corporate world. She also worked 10 years for the Archdiocese of Miami in various roles for the offices of Campus Ministry, Family Life, and Youth and Young Adult Ministry. During her time there she served as blogger, TV Mass cantor, and producer/host for two radio programs.

Currently serving in the field of sales as a Regional Territory Manager for a dental medical billing firm, Marta has served professionally in a wide range of industries from hospitality/conference planning to consumer products, television advertising and medical sales.

She continues to serve the Archdiocese of Miami in various ways including teaching for the School of Lay Ministry and singing at two parishes. Amid the diversity of ways in which Marta has been sharing her gifts, she has discovered that her greatest passion is to simply share God’s love and hope as an instrument of peace and unity. She also learned not to worry about what she could or couldn’t do or give, but simply to do all she could and give all she had and do it with God.

Her joy finds its foundation in the greatest joy of all, the love and precious company of God, family and friends, among them her special saints, such as St. Therese. For life isn’t so much about doing great things, but doing the smallest things with great love, only to discover the greatest greatness is in the smallest smallness.

Ultreya Diocesana

Friday, May 12, 2017 at 7:30 AM - Spanish

El Movimiento de Cursillos de la Arquidiócesis de Miami, tiene el placer de invitar a todos nuestros hermanos y hermanas Cursillistas a la Gran Ultreya Diocesana "Maria Madre Nuestra", que se llevará a cabo en la Parroquia de San Bartolomé, Miramar, este próximo 12 de mayo, a las 7:30 p.m.

La palabra “Ultreya” quiere decir “adelante” o “más allá”. Nosotros llamamos Ultreya a la reunión de reuniones de grupos. Cuando vamos a una Ultreya Diocesana, nos reunimos grupos de amistad de todas partes.  Es una gran fiesta reunirnos hermanos de aquí y de allá, para conocernos más con el compartir de nuestras experiencias y mucho más importante, crecer en el Señor. La Ultreya es una fiesta de Cursillo, que nos pone el Espíritu de Colores.

Show more >>

Finalidad y misión de la Ultreya:


A.-La finalidad de la Ultreya es:

  1. Mantener vivo el Espíritu y la amistad conseguida en un Cursillo, que es lo que ayuda a que el cursillista viviendo su Ideal, pueda ser fermento de Evangelio en el mundo.
  2. Ser una comunidad que se hace visible al convivir semanalmente la experiencia vivida del Amor de Dios, del amor al prójimo y del amor al mundo.  Fomentar la Conversión progresiva de todos los que en ella participan.
  3. Ser una comunidad unida en una sola Fe, un solo Señor y un solo Bautismo, que al reunirse entre sí trata de facilitar y compartir la vivencia de lo Fundamental Cristiano, que no es otra cosa que el Amor a Dios y el Amor a los hermanos.
  4. Ser un medio efectivo para encontrar, si no se tiene, el Grupo de Amistad.

B.- La misión de la Ultreya es:

  1. Propiciar la creación de grupos de cristianos que viven la Vida de la Gracia de un modo consciente, creciente y compartido, y que van haciendo fermentar el Evangelio en sus ambientes.
  2. Hacer una realidad entre los que participan en ella, lo que identificaba a los primeros cristianos, de los que se decía “mira cómo se aman…”

Cuando tomamos parte en una Ultreya, diocesana, regional o inter-parroquial, siempre nos debemos reunir con hermanos que no vemos a menudo o que no conocemos.  Como decimos en Cursillo “nos reunimos con los que debemos”. 

Eso hace que los lazos entre todos los cursillistas se estrechen, que nos conozcamos más entre nosotros. Muchas veces es la única oportunidad que tenemos para encontrarnos con hermanos que hicieron nuestro mismo Cursillo, y a los cuales, por distintas razones no vemos a menudo. La Ultreya es una fiesta de Cursillo, que nos pone el Espíritu de Colores.
