Cursillo is coming!
Cursillo is a Spanish word meaning "short course." A Cursillo weekend is a short course in Christian living that offers great experience in "how" to live guided daily by Christ's love. Over 9,000 Episcopalians in the Diocese of Texas have found the weekend at Camp Allen to be a joy-filled experience, while learning the Cursillo method and meeting people from across the Diocese. You will return to join the Cursillo community at St. Martin's, now totaling over 100 parishioners, and meet regularly with members in a reunion group.

  • The upcoming Cursillo weekend date is August 7-10. The cost is $225.00/person, which includes room, meals and all materials.
  • Scholarships are available through St. Martin's.


  • Download applications at www.episcopalcursillotexas.org. The deadline for applications is always a week before. For more information, contact Deb Tisch at 713/985-3817.

    Mon., Sep 22Saintly Stitchers
    The Saintly Stitchers meet each Monday, from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM in the Activity Center Upper Hall (east). Please join us for coffee, stitching and fellowship.

    We share techniques, equipment, ideas, cookies, and coffee. Our mission is to needlepoint cushions for the 300 kneelers in the pews. Each one is inscribed with Scripture from the Bible story in the nearest stained glass window. This needlepoint project is funded through donations from those wishing to honor loved ones by having their initials inconspicuously incorporated in the threads of a kneeler.

    Intermediate level and experienced stitchers gather to needlepoint pew kneelers for the nave as we share stitching techniques and fellowship. With 300 kneelers to cover we will welcome your talent.

    We are needlepointers, we are stitching to beautify the nave, and we need help from experienced needlepointers.


    Note: This group will not meet on holidays or during Church campus closings. Please contact the group leader for updates.
