The Cursillo Weekends were held at Adorers of the Blood of Christ Motherhouse in Ruma, Illinois, on March 8-11 and March 15-18, 2018. Garry Range, Margie Reaka and their Cursillo teams delivered two wonderful Cursillo Weekends for our newest members of the 4th Day Community. Both the men’s and women’s Cursillo hosted the maximum number of candidates. There were more applications from women than we had lodging; so, for the first time in recent memory, we have a short waiting list which gives us a potential head start on next year’s women candidates.
A major turnover in the Cursillo Secretariat has taken place over the past month. We now have a full Secretariat in position to guide our Cursillo Movement over the next few years. Thanks to all the outgoing members for doing a great job.
As many of you are aware, Nick Lang passed to the “5th Day” on January 7, 2018. Nick was a long-time proponent of Cursillo who served in many different ministries at St. Peter’s Cathedral and in Cursillo, his primary apostolate. In addition to many other positions in Cursillo, Nick was Lay Director for Cursillo twice; the second term ending only several months before he went in the hospital.
