On April 1st 2014, Nick Williams will become the eighth Lay Director of Orange County Cursillo since the inception of our diocese in 1976. He was unanimously elected by our hard working Cursillo Secretariat and approved by Bishop Kevin Vann to a three year term. The next time you see him please warmly greet him with the words: “Christ Is Counting On You!” We are truly blessed to hear Nick’s “YES” to serve Christ within OC Cursillo.

Nick lived his Cursillo Weekend #459 in October 2006. In that short time he has truly excelled already serving as rector twice! The first time was for Cursillo #523 in October 2010 and then he served as rector again in Dublin, Ireland in March 2012! Nick is the only person I know who has served as rector in both North America and Europe. Nick Williams has just completed four years as a member of the secretariat serving as our treasurer. When asked his favorite thing about Cursillo his response was “Its transformative power in people’s lives…”

I’m counting on Christ, are you?

De Colores!

Gary Gordon
Lay Director, 2011 – 2014
