Margaret and Gerry Smy have been involved with the Eucharistic Convention since it began way back in 1994. Their unselfish and ongoing support of this work has been a major reason for its success.
One of our speakers in previous years was Mr Tony Zuniga who, among other things, spoke about the Cursillo Movement he was involved with in the States. The concept of this movement struck a chord with Gerry and Margaret who consequently went to Australia to find out more about it.
As a result they decided to explore the possibility of bringing the Cursillo movement to New Zealand. They met with Bishop Pat Dunn in Auckland to discuss possibilities and as a result of that meeting received permission to promote the movement in the Auckland Diocese.
This video was recorded at our 2005 Eucharistic Convention.
