Cursillo #146 – As The Deer
April 28, 2022 - May 1, 2022
Hello, my fellow brother and sister Cursillistas — DeColores!
My name is Diana Overton. I attend St. Mark’s in north Tampa. In the fall of 2019, I received a call from our Secretariat asking me if I would accept the invitation to be Rectora for the weekend in the fall of 2020. As I prayed about this blessed opportunity, I asked the Lord if I could do this. He answered me saying: “No you can’t, but I can.” I’m so blessed, humbled and privileged to having been called to be God’s co-pilot on His weekend #146.
A little about myself. I made my Cursillo many, many years ago in the Diocese of Southeast Florida. As with so many of us, I encountered Jesus in such a wonderfully new way. He poured His unconditional love into my heart and changed my life forever. Then He laid a path before me leading to an amazing new journey and relationship with my new friend and Lord, Jesus Christ.
As we all are aware, Covid-19 cancellations started in March of 2020 and Cursillo #146 was postponed. As of June 2021, times are still uncertain as we continue to wade through the aftermath of the pandemic anxieties. Wavering opinions have determined that cautions should still prevail as we attempt to return to a somewhat normal society. This resulted in a decision to reschedule Cursillo #146 until April 28 – May 1, 2022 (God’s perfect time).
I pray that God’s glory will be revealed as we join together in the strength of our Lord and Savior to stand against any obstacles that are put in our way. He will renew our strength. As Isaiah 40:31 says: “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” We will renew our strength on wings of eagles.
I am reaching out to all of you to earnestly pray and discern whether you have a Holy Spirit nudge to join the team of #146. The theme for #146 is “As the Deer” – such a glorious song. Our souls do longeth after Him. He alone is our heart’s desire and we long to worship Him.
I would love to receive your team application. Also it’s not too early to think about Pilgrims. If each parish will send just one pilgrim, we will be overflowing with God’s grace.
I await in prayer and anxious anticipation to see Our Lord weave together the team and pilgrims of #146.
Blessings and Love-
