Make a friend ... be a friend ... bring your friend closer to Christ.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of us your faithful,
and kindle in us the fire of your love.
Send forth your spirit, and we shall be created.
And you shall renew the face of the Earth.
Let us pray.
O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit
instructs the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by that same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise
and ever rejoice in his consolations.
Through Christ our Lord.
FROM OUR LAY DIRECTOR
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
I hope you and your families are well and safe. As you know, our Cursillo activities have been on hold for over two months. I wanted to take a moment to give the Cursillo community an update on our current status.
During the past two months, our Secretariat, the incoming Rectors, and our Spiritual Advisors have been praying and discerning the feasibility of holding our scheduled Cursillo Weekends as planned in late July and August. Based on the feedback we received, we have decided to cancel the Men’s and Women’s Cursillo Weekends this year and postpone until summer of 2021.
As you can imagine, this was a very difficult decision to make, but we felt there were too many potential health and logistical issues we were unable to resolve on a tight and limited timeframe.
So, trusting that God is in control and has a plan for incredible Cursillo Weekends in 2021, we look forward to getting our Movement back to our core mission … sharing Christ’s LOVE in all of our environments!
With the recent announcement from Bishop Barbarito, it appears our Diocese is slowly transitioning to open up our parishes while implementing guidelines to ensure our safety as best as possible. The transition period of gradual reopening will also affect our Cursillo community and how we gather, pray and worship. In the upcoming weeks, the Secretariat will seek direction and guidance from our local Diocesan leaders and pastors, and then meet to discuss the recommended new protocols for any upcoming Cursillo gatherings.
We will communicate with our Cursillo community once we have confirmed the ability to gather at our local parishes again and have established new guidelines for those gatherings.
I miss you all, I love you all and I will see you all very soon. May God continue to bless all of you and your families,
