MESSAGE FROM SIS. CORA TUASON
A few months from now, we will have our Men and Women’s Cursillo Weekends. Have you been preparing for these events? Preparation for the weekends doesn’t concern only the servers. It should be the concern also of the whole community. One of the many ways we can help in their success, aside from praying, is to invite our friends to attend. This coming Monday, our very own brother, Deacon Steve Budnik, will talk about how to reach out to your friends and invite them to come, see, and experience the weekends. Why friends? Well, being a friend is about sharing God’s love and the willingness to make your friends better than they can ever be. Your relationship is the best invitation for them to become part of the Cursillo community. So dear friends, please come on Monday, June 18th and listen to Deacon Steve, for our inspiration and guidance in inviting our friends to attend the weekends. It will also be the last talk that I am coordinating as the chairperson of the School of Leaders, with the help of the SOL Core Group. I speak for the Core Group when I say, that the past four years have been a learning, exciting, rewarding, fun, productive, worthwhile, sometimes confusing, but more importantly, a blessed journey for us. We hope that you, who have been attending the school hence part of it, had enjoyed the ride as well and found the talks enlightening and useful in your Cursillo life. I thank the core members: Sisters Irma Avellanosa, Josie Herrera, Evelyn Isidro, Lolita Kintanar, Jean Lee, Cora Pediglorio, and Clarita Perez on my first term, and joined later by Sisters Edith Guevarra, Doris Sunga, and Annie Villarente on my second term, for working hard to come up with the monthly topics and looking everywhere for dynamic speakers. Without them, the SOL Nights would not have been as informative, instructive, and joyful. Thank you all. Bro. Mario has announced to the team reps in our June meeting that he has appointed a very able replacement for me, Sis. Gid Eugenio. Please extend to her the same support I received from you by attending all the SOL talks. I am not saying goodbye. I will be around and very much involved in the affairs of the FCC in the next 3 years at least. So dear brothers and sisters, we will see you all, okay?
As usual, we shall start the night with a sumptuous dinner to be served promptly at 6:30 PM by the refreshment teams: the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and the Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkata Teams. The setup teams will be the Queen of All Saints and Pilgrims Teams; while the cleanup teams will be the Antioch and Transfiguration Teams. Please do come with a friend or friends from your group reunion team. Let us share the learning and the fun we will all experience that night.
P.S. Please be reminded again to park at the B2Level, and to carpool to save on the $5 parking fee. God bless you all. De Colores! - Sis Cora Tuason

At the School of Leaders gathering on July 17, 2017, Deacon Noe Tuason led the discussion of immigration in the United State which is often a controversial issue with many social, economic, political and religious implications. The presentation reflected on the human struggle for a more dignified life and the search to find God in the midst of that struggle. A film, Dying to Live was shown to show the horrific human struggle to enter the United States. As Cursillistas what we need to know and what do we need to do.
