Important Message from Mike Albanese :
Dear Brother and Sister Cursillistas,
During this time, Christ will be our light and guide. However, if we are experiencing any difficulties during this time, continue to rely on the strength of Christ through prayer. Please know that your brother and sister Cursillistas are praying for you. If you need help, please feel free to reply this email or reach out to any Secretariat
Member. The contact information for each of member can be found at the following: http://pghcursillo.org/contact-u/
All events for Pittsburgh Cursillo have been cancelled for the months of March and April, except for Leaders School (online only) and Secretariat. May and beyond all events are still tentatively planned (subject to change).
Fourth Day Newsletter
You will be receiving the newsletter in the mail as it was mailed out yesterday. Please know the dates are not corrected in the newsletter for the Spring Weekends and the first installment of Missing Links due to the fluid situation.
Ultreyas and Group Reunions
Health advisors have stated that no group larger than 10 should meet and that we should practice social distancing (5-6 feet of space between individuals). If you decide to meet in person, it is encouraged to follow these rules.
If you decide not to meet in person, Please consider using either video conferencing, conference calling or other forms of social media to keep your small groups or Ultreyas active. Most of us have access to these tools and we should utilize them especially now.
If you have any questions on how to keep your Small Group or Ultreya running with these tools, feel free to contact me.
Ultreya Coordinators – I am willing to host your Ultreya on my FreeConferenceCall.com platform or quide you through the simple steps of setting up your own account. It is Free.
Missing Links is still planned to take place May 16 but not March 28.
