A MESSAGE FROM ROBERT LAURICELLA, LAY DIRECTOR 7.18.22

 

Dear Cursillistas,

Hope everyone is having a restful peaceful summer. The summer is one of my favorite seasons. Love going to the beach and sitting and reflecting and praying.
 
We have some dates to keep in mind:
  • Looking ahead to September - Friday September 9th is our Diocesan Mass at 7pm held at St Rose of Lima Chapel in Freehold N.J.
  • Also in September, Ronnie and Al Martella have been working on an exciting program for Sunday, September 18th from 2 pm to 4 pm called "The Celebration Continues." It will be held at Epiphany R.C. at Thiele Road in the back room. I am encouraging everyone to attend this event. Old friends who have lived a Cursillo weekend as well as new friends who may want to learn about Cursillo are welcome to join us.
  • Saturday, September 24th, School of Leaders will be held in the back room in Epiphany. I encourage all those that would be able to make the 9am mass can please do so. After careful consideration and prayer, School of Leaders is moved back to Saturday mornings due to community having issues with night driving. I will send the dates for sol once they have been all finalized.
Also please let Kathy Tucker know what you will be bringing to the picnic which is being held on Saturday August 6th at 10 Harte Ct. Freehold N.J.
 
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
 
DeColores,
Robert Lauricella, Lay Director

A NOTE FROM ROBERT LAURICELLA, LAY DIRECTOR

A Note From Robert Lauricella, Lay Director


Dear Cursillistas,

Wishing you a Happy Blessed New Year. Hard to believe the holidays came and went by us.

However, we are still in the Christmas season. Our Lord has come into the world shining brightly in our hearts. Christmas has always been a special time of the year for me.

We are blessed in many ways .Although we are experiencing trouble times right now. I know with the help of God, we can get through this.

At this time I am asking all ultreya to please postpone your in-person meetings at least for the month of January.

Also School of Leaders is cancelled for this month Our next SOL is scheduled for Saturday February 12th.

Due to the virus spiking we felt it necessary to postpone these events.

Our Next Diocesan Mass is scheduled for Friday March 11, 2022.

God Bless everyone please stay safe

DeColores, 
Robert Lauricella, Lay Director 

REMEMBERING FATHER JAY ON HIS BIRTHDAY

In this season of thanksgiving, we have many thanks to offer to Father Jay Bowden, who was born on this day in 1936.

It is over two years since Father Jay passed away. He remains in our thoughts, our hearts and our prayers.

In 2011, we assembled an audio of memories of seventeen cursillistas who had passed away. A full list of those remembered and the cursillistas who remembered them are down below.

At the end of the thirteen minute audio, Father Jay shares a memory of Joyce Walsh Zarsky. Father Jay ends his memory as he wishes Joyce to RIP - first saying Rest in Peace but  then changing it to in Rejoice in Peace. 

Rejoice in Peace, Father Jay. We love you and DeColores!

You can listen to the memories AT THIS LINK.
