I have several important updates on the Secretariat below.
As noted in a prior newsletter, Mike O’Connell’s term as Treasurer ended on June 30. Mike agreed to stay on, however, until we discerned a new Treasurer.
I’m excited to announce that Paul Milioto has discerned and accepted to be our new Treasurer, effective August 1. Paul is a member of Holy Spirit Parish. Paul has served on several teams and also as a Rector. Paul brings his enthusiasm, initiative, teamwork, and desire to serve to the Secretariat. He is active in his Group Reunion (Fourth Day). We are excited for Paul to join us and serve you, the community.
I give thanks to Mike O’Connell for his service to our Secretariat. Mike has been a consistent and steady voice on the Secretariat. His attention to detail and compliance along with his experience was much appreciated. He improved the Movement’s monthly reporting, worked with John Huan Vu to rollout the online payments, and ensured we were compliance with the Diocese of San Jose. You may know that Mike is also serves on Kairos teams and the Tijuana Ministry Core Team, and is a leader in the Church of the Resurrection Parish. We are blessed that Mike served our Movement.
Mickey Salem and Sandy Tinapay discerned to step away from their role as Co-Three Day Chair effective immediately. I greatly appreciate their organization, training the teams, working with the Sisters (they will miss you), helping the Head Cooks and Community Liaisons, buying supplies, organizing/unloading/loading the trailer, and making sure Saint Clare is in tip-top condition before leaving the facility at the end of the weekend. It’s a lot of work and both did it with love, patience, and grace. They were active stewards of our Movement. I thank them for their service.
Given this, we are seeking a Three-Day Chair and you may serve as a pair if you like. Please contact me if you would like more information on serving as our Three-Day Chair.
On Wednesday, July 15, 2020, we will have an Online Healing Mass at 7PM with Father Chris Bennett. Please see the details below.
There is also time to register for the National Cursillo Encounter 2020. It is open to all Cursillistas. Please see details below.
As always, please be safe. Let us know how we might serve you. Please continue being that Light of Christ for someone else. Walk and talk your faith and use those gifts that God gave to each of you. We bring others to Christ by our actions and deeds. Let others see Jesus in you.
You are in my daily prayers.
Sincerely and De Colores,
