Dear The Rev. Victor,

Be thankful to God!

Upcoming Cursillo Weekend
July 14 – July 17, 2016


As Secretariat President, I am pleased to announce that we have scheduled weekend the next weekend #117 for July 14 – July 17, 2016 at the Chapel Rock Conference Center in Prescott. It will be a coed weekend. After much praying and consideration, the Secretariat has selected Virginia Reutter from All Saints in the Desert in Sun City to be the Rectora. Over the next few weeks she will be seeking Cursillistas to be part of the weekend team.
To help Virginia in this process of selecting another outstanding team, we are asking those who will be able and willing to serve to fill out an application and submit it as soon as possible. Don’t wait until someone contacts you . . . pray about it and complete the application. If you have never served on a team, now is your time to step forward for a real blessing by serving others. It will renew, deepen, and strengthen not only your commitment to Christ and his Church, but also your understanding of The Cursillo Ministry. It is impossible, being on one weekend to grasp all that is offered, but each weekend that you have the privilege to serve on a team gives you new insights and multiple of new blessings. Each weekend is the same but different, with different team members and candidates. The Holy Spirit uses all our experiences and differences to create a very special time for all.
What are the requirements to be on a team?
  • Currently be participating in a group.
  • Willingness to be a servant to others.
  • Be a team player.
  • Immerse yourself in the process, with prayer, study, preparation and participation.
  • Attend all the team meetings to support the team.
  • Sing with joy and a loud voice even if you have trouble staying on key!
You can find the link for Cursillo Team Application on the left of this newsletter.
It is also time to start thinking and praying about sponsoring candidates for the weekend.  The application forms and information in the Quick Link, talk to your clergy, the members of your group and to God to identifying potential candidates.  Deadline for Application April 1, 2016.
It takes all of us to do our part with the Holy Spirit to spread God’s Kingdom on earth.
Cost for the weekend:
Single Occupancy Linen –  $375.00
Double Occupancy Linen –  $300.00
Pray for the weekend, pray for Virginia and the team, pray for the candidates, and pray for your Secretariat. We are praying for you and Christ is counting on you.
Peace and Joy,


Arizona Episcopal Cursillo Ministry
