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.

Amen.

FROM OUR SECRETARIAT

June 2022

 

De Colores my brothers and sisters!

 

As some of you may know, we have commenced our preparations for the upcoming Men’s and Women’s Cursillo weekends at Our Lady of Florida and the teams have started their team formations. Our Rollistas are preparing for their critiques, and we are in full motion moving forward as our 2022 Cursillo weekend schedules are getting prepared. Dennis Marquez and Eric Gardner are leading Men's Cursillo Weekend #62 on July 28-31, and Jaimee Perez and Tracy Mallette are leading  Women's Cursillo #63 on August 11-14.

 

Please keep the Rectors and teams in your prayers, as these men and women that have committed themselves to this journey of bringing our future brothers and sisters closer to Christ. We are blessed that God chose the Rectors that will lead these men and women, with the Holy Spirit’s guidance, on this formation journey. Our Men and Women’s Teams understand the importance of these upcoming Cursillo weekends to fulfill a simple mission, that carries great weight. As Jesus Christ asked of us, if there is one commandment to obey, that it is this, to love one another liked God loved you… “LOVE IS OUR MISSION.”

 

With that in mind, do know that we have been dealing with obstacles, but with our ongoing prayer, determination and talents, we have been able to overcome most of them. We remind each other that in Jesus we trust, and God is in control. Our Divine Father will guide is and provide for us what we need to do his will. And it is in that trust that has allowed our Secretariat, our weekend rectors and our Cursillo weekend teams to carry on with our mission.

Costs for the weekend have increased significantly since 2019. So, for this reason my brothers and sisters, we are asking for financial palanca from our community. Any donations you can give would be a tremendous help in off setting the cost of our Cursillo weekends. This would help those in need of financial assistance and pay for the weekend at Our Lady of Florida.

 

I would like to thank you for your ongoing generosity and prayers. If you can donate please make all checks payable to Palm Beach Cursillo. If you are mailing your checks you can mail them to two of our Secretariat members:

I would again like to thank our community with the ongoing support and faith as we prepare for our Cursillo weekends. We have been blessed this year to have 19 Men applications and 20 Women applications. And it is for this reason we cannot turn back. Please help us make this mission a success -not for us - but for the candidates that have been yearning for a Cursillo weekend for the past two years.

 

May God continue to bless all of you.
