Deacon Doug Cook
Deacon Doug Cook has been the Executive Director of the Orange Diocese Cursillo Movement since 2005.
Deacon Cook was ordained in 1979 and has since founded a ministry to assist the homeless (over 2950 families housed). He has witnessed 315 marriages, baptized over 1600 children and continues to touch lives through Cursillo.
Cursillo in Christianity is a Movement which, by its own Method, attempts from within the Church, to give life to the essential Christian truths in the singularity, originality and creativity of the person. In discovering their potential and accepting their limitations, they will direct their freedom with their conviction, reinforce their will with decisiveness and direct their friendship with the virtue of constancy in their day-to-day life, personally and with others.
