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. +++++ Phyllis McKinstry remembers Valerie Bromsky Jackie Devine remembers her husband, Tom Devine Johnny DiStefano remembers Bob Leone Til Dallavalle remembers Arny Dupont Rick Klarmann remembers Roger Webster Mary Ann Dowd remembers her brother, Anthony Forte Lisa Klarmann

LETTER FROM ROBERT LAURICELLA

Dear Cursillistas, This coming Thursday as we know is Thanksgiving. Do not know where the time goes. We do have a lot to be thankful for. Jesus reminds us all  all the time that He is with us. I know i am thankful for the blessings he has Blessed me with,  especially when we stop to think about what we have experienced as a whole with the pandemic. Jesus reminds us that he is here with us. This Coming Sunday is this feast of Christ the King.. I always loved this feast.  As we come close to the season of Advent let us prepare ourselves for the Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Sometimes we get overwhelmed and caught up with all that has to be done for Christmas.Take time and pray and focus and walk with our Lord. Talk to him. He Knows what we want and desire in life. I will be praying for all of you as i always do this Thanksgiving. Remember pray pray pray. Happy Blessed Thanksgiving to all. DeColores Robert Lauricella Lay Director. P.S.: Remember our Mass will be Friday December 3  St.

A NOVEMBER MESSAGE by ROBERT LAURICELLA, LAY DIRECTOR

DeColores, Cursillistas, As I reflect on the month of November, I always think of Thanksgiving as a day that we give thanks. We should be thankful everyday. Our Lord is smiling down on all of us. The Love he has for us is so profound. We are his and his we are. God is good all the time. In the month of November we also remember all who have gone before us who are living their fifth day with Our Lord in heaven. Please know that I have everyone on my heart and on my prayer list. Hope to see everyone soon. DeColores, Robert J Lauricella Lay Director, Trenton Cursillo
