June 2020


Greetings and DE COLORES


Blessings to all of our Brothers and Sisters in Christ: First of all I want to give you a heartfelt thank you for all your support during my difficult time. My family and I continue to believe that God has a plan for all of us. We need to always be prepared to meet our Creator. Tino my husband, was a great example of love and friendship. We had our first Secretariat meeting with social distancing at Jim and Jean Ward’s home. We were so happy to see each other and prepare to deal with this Coronavirus. We know that Bishop Vasquez has now approved 50% capacity at our parishes. I want to let you know that because of safety and not knowing when we will be back to 100%, the Secretariat has agreed not to hold any more weekends this year. We value safety first. We want to implement the Zoom to our Community to be used for our events of Secretariat meetings, School of Leaders, and Ultreyas. We had our first Lay Director’s meeting last month through Zoom. At first I felt intimated because I am really not a computer person. However, through the help of my son and Jim, I had a wonderful experience, especially during this difficult time. I could not believe what an effective tool of technology could be so inspiring and available to all. We have been given permission to have our first Secretariat meeting and our first School of Leaders at the Cursillo Center on Saturday, July 11, 2020. In the meantime, we have gotten permission from our Pastor at Holy Family to hold our first Ultreya at our Social Hall on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at 3pm. NO POTLUCK. Please come and rekindle our love and friendship for each other. We will be introducing information of how to communicate and do events through ZOOM. I will be asking Jim and Dominga to explain this new communication tool at our August Ultreya. So please come and appreciate the work that Jim and Dominga have done. This tool will also allow so many people that cannot travel to participate in everything without leaving their homes. Jim is updating our website and will have lots of information for you to see and please do not hesitate to ask questions or express your feelings. We are here to serve you, but we also need your positive comments. Our Nationals will be in Omaha, Nebraska on Friday, July 24 and Saturday, July 25, 2020. The registration form is on our website. What’s unique about this EVENT this year, (it will be Viral.) This means that everyone can participate by sitting in your comfortable homes. The other thing is that registration is only $50.00 rather than $386.00. What a steal and mostly a great opportunity to experience it, especially if you have never attended one. Please check our website as it has all the details and datelines. We have to have faith and trust in God to help us restore our lives. We continue to practice safety. I pray that now that we are at 50% that we will return to attending Mass. We need our Eucharist now more than ever. Keep our clergy in your prayers as well as our Deacons. A big blessed Happy Father’s Day to all of our Fathers in the world.
