The Central Virginia Cursillo Center Coordinating Committee is transitioning for 2019.  The Committee operates well because of the many dedicated volunteers who have served in multiple positions.  One steps down and another steps up.  Their service to Cursillo is essential and greatly appreciated.

 

We have been very fortunate for the past Chairpersons of the Coordinating Committee to include Dick Commander for many years and, most recently for three years, Dan Martin.  We appreciate all the time, effort, sweat and tears they both voluntarily put into Cursillo.  Their heartfelt leadership has helped keep Cursillo Alive.  We love and thank you both!

 

On January 1, 2019, Galen W. and Janet Potter began serving as Co-Chairs of the Coordinating Committee.  They are parishioners at Church of the Sacred Heart in Prince George and both serve as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and on the Evangelization Committee.  Galen is a facilitator for Adult Enrichment and Janet serves as Coordinator of the Prayer Shawl Ministry.  Galen made his weekend in February, 2002, and Janet made hers in November, 2005.  They graduated from Spiritual Direction in 2016 and have served CVCC as Pre-Cursillo Coordinators for four years. 

 

Stepping Down and Stepping Up - After 13 years as Treasurer, Deacon Bob Straub decided the time had come to turn his Treasurer duties over to someone else.  He is remaining on the committee as a Member-at-Large.   Mary Martin assumed the Treasurer position. Kathy Mendez served as General Palanca Coordinator for many years and decided the time had come to pass those duties to another.  Nancy Losteter joined CVCC in late 2018 and volunteered to assume the Palanca Coordinator position.  Ellen Herod is assuming the PreCursillo Coordinator duties and Lisa Aberle has assumed the 4th Friday Coordinator duties and will serve as the Communications Coordinator.  Dan Martin will remain as a Member-at-Large and coordinate the CVCC Website and assist with Communications.

 

We acknowledge the volunteer service to CVCC of those listed above and to Patricia and Thomas Allen, Mary and Paul Attanasio, Kathy Cook, Scott Fisher, Rob Grubbs, Janet Hasenfus, Kathy and Steve Haut, Joel Nuckols, Russell Wisler, Cris Pond, Andy Mercadante, Ronald Wisniewski, Russell Titone, and Glenn Pfluger.

 

The Committee encourages everyone to continue sharing your faith through your words, actions, and deeds.  Whenever possible plant seeds about Cursillo and how it has enriched your life.  Invite other Catholics to consider attending a Cursillo Weekend.  A Cursillo Weekend may be the “Best Gift You Could Give Yourself.”

 

Make a Friend, Be a Friend, Bring a Friend to Christ!

CURSILLO TRAINING WORKSHOP. All are invited to the annual Cursillo workshop to be held on Saturday 2/2. The location is Epiphany in Room 122, educational wing.  We gather at 8:30 AM, start the workshop at 9AM and end around noon.  If you are planning on coming to the workshop, please email Dick Commander (cmdrdick@comcast.net) just so he knows who is coming.  Please bring a breakfast snack to share.  If you decide to ccome at the last minute, no problem; just show up. 

 

 

 

Cursillo is a method and the purpose of the workshop is to explain each aspect of the weekend in detail. Whether you are a sponsor, team member or just curious, this is good information. Anyone who desires to be on a team should attend a workshop, All attendees will be put on a list for consideration by future Rector(a)s. You are only asked to attend once, but repeaters are welcome.
