REGION TWO UPDATE by SUE WENZLICK, REGION 2 ENGLISH COORDINATOR


Hello Region 2 Cursillistas!

I pray that your summer has been going well – I know mine has gone too fast!  I was so glad to see so many familiar faces at the 28th National Encounter last week in Seattle!  It certainly was a spirit filled group of people all gathering together in the name of the Lord.

I am sending you this email to invite you to the Region 2 Fall Encounter scheduled for October 19-21, 2018 in Vineland, NJ.  All Cursillistas in Region 2 – in all Dioceses in their respective language groups – are invited.  So please spread the word!

What is a Region 2 Encounter?  This is a joyful event in which leaders from the Cursillo movements in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington, DC gather together for a weekend of food, fellowship, learning, sharing, prayer, Mass, rosary, and mutual support in friendship towards our common endeavor of bringing our friends to Christ in our own dioceses. Cef Aguillon, National English Coordinator, will be presenting rollos at this encounter! Won’t you please join us?

The website (http://www.cursilloregion2.org/) will be updated shortly with an agenda.  Please sign up today!
