From Karen Maurer, Set-Up Co Chair
The weekend fast approaches, and we are blessed with a full team and 35 Pilgrims! Praise God for all the enthusiasm and many hands that make this possible! However, we do continue to need your prayers, Palanca and assistance.
Palanca needs include bottled water, both small and large bottles, a variety of soda (regular and diet), candy (with and without sugar), and “Green Palanca” additional money to cover a variety of expenses that may arise. This all can be delivered by Sponsors when luggage is dropped off at the cabins, and we thank you and praise God for your continued love, offerings and sacrifices.
A reminder to Sponsors: Please be sure to feed and then deliver your Pilgrims (after enjoying a meal together) to Day Spring between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. on Thursday October 25th. Look for the set-up people in yellow vests who will direct you to the Program Center. There, the Pilgrims will be welcomed and escorted to registration. Please proceed to the cabins behind the program center to drop off Palanca and luggage. Set-Up in yellow vests will be there to unload. Then stop by St. Thomas Chapel for prayer time with Jan Spangler (Friend of Team) before you leave.
We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Saturday Night Serenade on October 27th. This is a special gift! Arrive between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. and park in the soccer field past the Bishop’s office on your left as you drive into Day Spring. Set Up in yellow vests will direct parking. Golf carts will be available for transportation to the Program Center. The Serenade is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. and finish at 7:30 p.m.
Bringing Pilgrims Home
On Sunday October 28th please drive up to Luke Cabin to pick up your Pilgrim’s luggage upon arriving. Then return and park in the soccer field and walk up to the Program Center. Golf carts will be available for transportation. Please be seated for the Clausura no later than 3:30 p.m. for fellowship, singing and the arrival of our new Cursillistas at 4:00 p.m.
The Fourth Day is scheduled for Saturday, November 17th at 8:30 a.m. at the Church of the Nativity in Sarasota. Make a date with your new Cursillista to attend! It’s a day of deeper understanding, and a mini spiritual retreat for all. Look for information on the website, and your new Cursillista will have the flyer in hand.
