Lay Director Message

Chris Basanese / Lay Director

Dear Friends …

Every three years, a unique process occurs in the Cursillo Community. The process is to select an individual to lead our community for the next three years as Lay Director.

As I mentioned previously, this event will occur this week on Thursday, June 6, 2019. This important discernment will choose the next Lay Director for the three-year term beginning on July 1, 2019.

If you can, please RSVP via Facebook Event.

The entire Cursillo Community is invited and encouraged to attend the Lay Director Discernment offering prayers of love and support throughout the process.

During the discernment, a Selection Committee is formed to choose the next Lay Director. The Selection Committee is made up of Secretariat Members in attendance along with an equal number of community members drawn at random in attendance.

Those part of the Selection Committee will make a selection based on what they hear from those discernment in tandem with the prompting from the Holy Spirit. Even if you are not chosen to be part of the Selection Committee, you will also be the first among the community to warmly greet the next Lay Director of the San Jose Cursillo.

I strongly encourage you attend as we can fit a lot of our community into the church at Saint Thomas of Canterbury. Let’s see how full we can get it.

In Conclusion …

Know that you are all in my prayers everyday.

Inspirational Quotes

“Faith is to believe what you do not see. The reward of faith is to see what you believe.”

St. Augustine

“Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again: for forgiveness has risen from the grave!”

St. John Chrysostom

“Mary, who is the Virgin Most Pure, is also the Refuge of Sinners. She knows what sin is, not by the experience of its fall, not by tasting its bitter regrets, but by seeing what it did to her Divine Son.”

Venerable Fulton Sheen
