In light of the current situation with the nation and under the directive of National, we have canceled our Men’s Weekend for April 2020 and the Women’s Weekend for July 2020.
Our next Ultreya scheduled for April 24, 2020, at St. James in Hopewell is also canceled.
If you are a sponsor for a candidate for either of these weekends, please work with your candidate and Ellen in rescheduling them for a later weekend.
We are prayerful that our Men’s Weekend in October 2020 is still a go.
We pray that all are well and practicing the guidance published by our leadership. We are now more than a couple of weeks into this new practice of social distancing and pray that it is the right thing and will end when the time is right.
I am sure that this newfound “social distancing” will affect our community as we begin to gather for events in the future. Being a community of huggers, it will take time before we are comfortable with the level of personal contact we have become accustomed to when we meet. For some, it will return quickly and for others, maybe never. So we ask that we all be respectful of others and their personal space now and when we begin to gather as a community.
Peace And DeColores,
As many of you know, Mary and Dan Martin will be leaving us next week to move to Florida. We would like to have a farewell from the Cursillo community. With space restrictions and social distancing this is what we have decided. At Woodlake there is an aquatic center with a parking area close to the Woodlake pavilion. Google the Woodlake Aquatic Center to see the exact location. The path next to the aquatic center pools goes right to the pavilion area. If everyone is wearing their masks, Mary's group reunion decided the area is big enough to spread out so people are at least 6-8 feet apart. If people arrive at 7 pm on Friday, May, 15th and spread out on the grassy area, Mary and Dan will sit on one of the picnic tables. I will supply a basket for palanca for Mary and Dan to read en route to FL. It will be something for them to enjoy in their new home and before they form a new group of friends. Mary requests letters only since flowers and plants would not survive the several day trip to FL. Feel free to bring a battery operated votive candle and when we sing DeColores @ 7:30-7:45 everyone could light their candle. Battery-operated only since it is a forested area and we do not want to get in trouble. Also remember we need to keep our distance from each other or the police will come and send everyone home!
Feel free to invite any Epiphany parishioner who is not a Cursillista and would want to say farewell and ask that person to write Dan and Mary a note to take with them. I cannot stress enough what Mary said, " No gifts as they will already have their cars filled to the brim." Thank you for your participation in this event to recognize Dan and Mary for their leadership in our Cursillo community.
All Ultreyas are canceled through September 2020. Please disregard any system generated messages regarding upcoming Ultreyas.

I am making another appeal for return of the brown Cursillo manuals. I have received 22 manuals back so far. That means there are still at least 18 manuals out in the community some where. We will have weekends again, hopefully not too distant in the future. When we do we will need enough manuals to equip two teams at a time. If we don't get the manuals back, we will have to purchase new ones at a cost of $21 each. So if you have ever been on a team, please search your closets, bookshelves, etc. Your cooperation is greatly appreaciated.
If you do have one, contact me at (804) 397-0025 to arrange for me to pick it up.
Thank you & DeColores,
Please join us this Friday for our first Zoom Ultreya. Use the link below to sign on to the meeting. We will begin promptly at 7:30 PM. Obviously this will be different than the usual Ultreyas. We will start off explaining how some of the changes will work. We ask that after signing on you mute your microphone. There will be music and you are welcome to and even encouraged to sing as loudly and joyfully as you want, just keep your microphone muted.
Our witness will be Bill Rubin and spiritual direction will be lead by Father John Kazibwe, Pastor from Church of the Epiphany. We will break out into small groups, Robin will explain how that is going to happen.
I want to take this opportunity to announce to the community that I, Russell Titone, have taken over the Chairman duties for the CVCC. My contact information is Batfish681@verizon.net; (804) 397-0025. We will have intercessory prayers. If you have a specific person or topic you want included in the intercessory prayers send them to me either by email or text. They will be read at the Ultreya.
I also would like to make an appeal for witnesses for future Ultreyas. I'm sure many of you have been facing challenges in your 4th day during this pandemic and we are anxious to hear your stories. Again you can either email or text me. Our plans are to have one Zoom Ultreya a month until we can resume in person Ultreyas. We are looking at November 20th for the next one which is the Friday before Thanksgiving.
Although we don't know when we will be able to resume weekends, we want to encourage everyone to continue to recruit new people so when we do resume we will have candidates. If you would like to invite people to this Ultreya even if they have not made a weekend, please do. You can forward this invitation to them and they can join. Everyone is welcome.
Finally, as a precaution, you may get a separate email with the Zoom invitation. We aren't 100% sure sending it out with this system will work. We will test it ahead of time.
Thank you and DeColores,
Time: Oct 23, 2020 07:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
