Please consider joining us on November 6 at Notre Dame Retreat Center for Women's 89 closing -Clausura. Please arrive by 3:15 and go right to the Chapel.
Traditionally in the past we have had a closing Mass, however there will be no Mass at the Closing. The Cursillo community will meet and welcome the new Cursillistas as we gather with our Brothers and Sisters in Christ. It will be a special moment for all, especially the new Cursillistas. The team members and Secretariat will be introduced as well. I am sharing this with you because, in the past, many considered this Mass as a fulfillment of their Sunday obligation. Since there is no Mass, the Sunday Mass attendance is now encouraged with the home parish.
There is a signup in this flocknote for you to use.
The purpose of the Clausura is to get the new Cursillistas to live and experience what they have been told in the Rollos of "Christianity in Action", Cursillista Beyond the Cursillo" and "Total Security" that it is a living reality. The presence and the words of the "distinguished visitors" in the closing ceremony bears witness to the fact that it is possible to live every day, throughout our entire lifetime and in the normalcy of each person, the living, normal and close Christ that they have discovered in the Cursillo.
Women's 89 November 3-6, 2022 at Notre Dame. DeColores!
Women's 89 is coming up soon - November 3-6 at Notre Dame Retreat House. We are asking all Cursillistas to offer Palanca for our candidates.
What is Palanca? It has always been an essential part of Cursillo and gives witness to the solidarity of the members of the Church. It is the actual prayers, sacrifices and works of mercy. The actual Palanca is the action - intercessory prayer, sacrifice, or works of mercy. It is important to know that you can make sacrifices for others, even if you don't know them.
This information comes from the Leaders" Manual of the US Catholic Cursillo Movement.
You can share your Palanca sending it to our Rectora - Mary Liz Bartell email@example.com.
I, Mary Liz Bartell, am pleased to announce I have accepted to rector the Women's 89 Cursillo, June 10, 2021 - 6/13/2021 at Notre Dame Retreat House. I am asking for your prayers for my team and the candidates.
I also need your help.
If you're interested in joining this W89 team, or any future team, Our new team flyer outlines the qualities that build authentic and true practitioners of the Cursillo Method. The team members must attend regular Ultreyas, be actively Grouping, and also participate in School of Leaders or other Cursillo learning opportunities such as the Step by Step, CDC, CLW Cursillo Leaders Workshops, & CEW Evangelization Workshops, etc.
If you'd like to be selected for teaming in the future these will be the standard criteria regardless of past team experience. It's important that we have teams that are living witnesses of Christ who walk the walk, not by giving Rollos that are empty of the foundational charism. It's by living the Method that Cursillo builds friendships in Christ.
I hope you all pray about serving on future teams and recommit to the Method. Christ is counting on you.
