ANNUAL STATEWIDE REUNION – SATURDAY, OCT. 12
12 P.M. MEAL AND SILENT AUCTION
2 P.M. WORSHIP AND MEMORIAL SERVICE
If you plan to donate, please complete the online Silent Auction Form by October 8 2019!
Once a year, Cursillistas gather to fellowship together at our annual statewide reunion at First United Methodist in Pineville! The reunion begins at noon with a delicious meal ($10) prepared by the Central Ultreya and a silent auction fundraiser to support the Cursillo movement, followed by a 2 p.m. Worship and Memorial Service during which we recognize the Cursillistas by name who have gone on to Glory since the last Statewide Reunion.
MEMORIAL SERVICE – Email names of those who have died this past year to Marianne Addy at email@example.com or call 504-512-1321.
SILENT AUCTION – Following the success of last year’s silent auction the plan is to continue along the same vein of requesting NO garage sale type donations but instead for each Ultreya to donate at least one themed Gift Basket (no alcohol please). We encourage individuals to donate Cursillo/Palanca type items, handmade items, events/experiences (such as dinners, classes, hunts, weekend getaways etc).
The Silent Auction runs concurrently to the meal so everyone has an opportunity to visit with each other, eat, and shop early for Christmas and Palanca gifts. Proceeds from the Silent Auction help to pay for Cursillo weekends and help to keep the Pilgrim and Staff fees at their current rates. Credit cards accepted!
At 2 p.m. we assemble in the Sanctuary for Worship and the Memorial Service. Rev. Roger Templeton (Gretna UMC) will be sharing the message.
Please join us!
Cursillo is held from Thursday evening through Sunday late afternoon, at the Wesley Center in Woodworth, LA.
