A note from our Lay Director regarding the Payment Fees/ Costs (November 7, 2023)

Hello Cursillo Family,

I am reaching out regarding Cursillo weekend rate changes starting with the Spring 2024 weekends.

Most of you know that we have been running in the red for a few years now. With the pandemic, we intentionally waited on weekend rate increases to give everyone a chance to get back on their feet. The current rate of $225 and it is only enough to pay for the rental of St. Clare's Retreat Center. At that rate, we do not have enough to cover other weekend expenses such as food and supplies for the team and candidates, as well as on-going operational expenses such as music licensing, national/regional dues, etc. Additionally, the cost of St. Clare's Retreat Center is going up in 2024.

Given this, we cannot keep this up as our community will run out of money. Know that a lot of prayer and financial analysis has gone into this decision, and know that your Secretariat has waited as long as we could to move forward with an increase.

Therefore, the rate will increase to $280 per person starting with the 2024 Spring Cursillo weekends. This amount represents the minimum to keep us out of the red going forward. In a related decision, we will no longer charge an additional card transaction fee if anyone decides to pay online either before the weekend or at registration.

As in the past, if you experience a financial burden when working a weekend, please work with your Rector(a) regarding assistance. We remain committed to ensuring that all who want to make a Cursillo weekend are able to do so and will handle each on a case by case basis!

Thank you for your understanding.
