THE POSTCURSILLO ... "Everything that is done in terms of the Cursillo methodology and purpose has as its end objective the postcursillo.  The precursillo and the Cursillo weekend are only preliminary steps toward the postcursillo. The purpose of the three days is to bring people from the precursillo into the postcursillo...The basic purpose of the postcursillo is to renew, accelerate and perfect conversion of each individual who has experienced the three days...The primary objective is for each person to find his or her own unique place in the Church and in the world and for the postcursillo to provide them the means to persevere in living the Christian life there. (The Postcursillo, Group Reunion & Ultreya, by Gerry Hughes)

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord Jesus,
    I want to invite all Cursillistas to come to the Retreat for 4th Day Cursillistas that will be held at St. Joseph School in Beatrice on Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10 (see the insert in this newletter for additional information).  A special invitation is extended to all of the Candidates, the Talk teams and the Palanca teams from the January weekends held in Lincoln.  However, all of us could use some encouragement in living our lives of faith and being better evangelizers in our environments.
    Another important tool we have to help us to live our faith lives as Cursillistas is the weekly Grouping and monthly Ultreya.  I encourage you to be faithful to grouping and Ultreya.  Please talk with your Sponsor or your Secretariat Representative to help you find a Group & to be active in the Cursillo Movement.
    Please notice that the Spring Regional Meeting is very close to us ... in Grand Island.  Please take advantage of this opportunity &make plans to attend the Spring Regional Meeting
    Also, the next Cursillo Weekends have been set for July 12-15 (men) and July 19-22  (women) at St. Wenceslaus School in Wahoo.  The practice weekend will be Friday, July 6 - Saturday, July 7.  Begin now to study your environments and invite people you know to prepare to be candidates for these weekends.
    De Colores!         Fr. Mark Seiker
