The Cursillo Weekends were held at the Adorers of the Blood of Christ Motherhouse in Ruma, Illinois, on March 7-10 and March 14-17, 2019. Tony Gugliotta, Bernadette Charlton, and their Cursillo teams delivered two wonderful Cursillo Weekends for our newest members of the 4th Day community. Please join me in welcoming those new Cursillistas to the 4th Day community. This was the second year in a row that both the Men’s and Women’s Cursillo hosted the maximum number of candidates, and we still have potential candidates who, unfortunately, had to be put on a waiting list for next year’s Cursillos.
Deacon Wayne Weiler, Bernadette Charlton, and I, along with our spouses, will represent the Cursillo Program in our Diocese at the Cursillo Region IV Spring Encounter on April 5-7, 2019, at St Joseph’s Retreat and Conference Center in Tipton, Indiana. The primary agenda item for this Encounter will be a workshop for the new “Step By Step” process, which will replace the 3-Day Manual. Details are still limited, but we will know a lot more after this Encounter. I was told that the 3-Day Manual will not be published but will be available on the National Website. I was also told that the actual changes to the Weekend schedule, including the Rollos and their sequence, will be minor. More information will be available shortly after the Region IV Encounter.
Love, Joy, Peace, and De Colores!
