First - maybe most importantly? - bookings for our next Cursillo weekend, Ely #37, are open. We already have some pilgrims signed up, but there are still spaces available.
So, if you have someone in mind to invite, please do (the application form is on the event page). And if you haven't, do still keep your heart and mind open as you pray and as you talk to friends and fellow church members - you may yet feel a gentle nudge...
Secondly, the National Ultreya takes place in London on Saturday 3 September, for a celebration that will begin at St Paul's and finish in Southwark. It would be lovely to see a big contingent there from Ely. Later in the summer we'll put a list of suggested trains from selected locations across the diocese up on this site so that some of us can travel together.
If you are planning on going, the joint Ultreya group have asked that you register on the BACC website so that they can get an idea of numbers.
Thirdly, we're carrying out a survey of Ely Cursillistas so that your (relatively new!) secretariat can get a clearer picture of what's going on and who does what in Ely Cursillo, not to mention who might like to get more involved - and who would really like to stop.
We've already had a very encouraging number of responses - please keep them coming! If you missed or have lost the email, here's a link: https://forms.gle/Pr8gEast258mcwvi6
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
Psalm 63: 1-4
