The Cursillo Movement in America

This chapter focuses on Dorothy Gereke, formerly known as Sister Mary Concetta of the Detroit-based Sisters of Mercy, one of the cofounders of Teens Encounter Christ. Today, Dorothy is “a little bit slower than I used to be,” largely because of circulation problems in her legs, which require her to wear support hose so that she can walk. Dorothy dislikes the hose, which take a long time to put on and are tight, but she sighs and says that it is necessary to wear them so that she can walk and “to do the work that I do for the Lord.” Dorothy's spirit and determination make her appear younger than her age, and her easy laugh, sparkling eyes, and warm demeanor make it easy to see why she is affectionately called “Mama TEC” by her admirers in the movement.
