Group Reunions: Are still meeting, either in person or via ZOOM. If you are not already a member of a Group Reunion, may we urge you to join one. They are the primary method of keeping the flame kindled during the Three Days burning brightly. They provide encouragement, accountability and on-going fellowship. A list of currently operating groups can be found on the Member Resources page.

Dear Aussie Cursillistas
Thank you for continuing to include us as honorary members of Anglican
As you know, we were unable to hold HK#3 in 2020 due to the virus. We now have a date for this year, it’s planned for June 11-14. We also have a backup date in case we’re still not clear of the virus and able to meet freely by then, and the backup dates are September 30-October 3.
I think I mentioned in my last email that our new Archbishop Andrew Chan has gladly agreed to be our sponsoring bishop for HK Cursillo. Matthias who you met, who was Dean of our Cathedral, is now our Bishop of HK Island Diocese, and he will attend HK#3 as a participant. I’m glad to report that we now have 3 established small groups meeting once a fortnight on Zoom, on Tuesday morning 8am, Tuesday lunchtime, and Thursday evening 8pm. Zoom has really helped us to establish these groups more firmly, because it’s so much easier for our small community, living in scattered parts of the territory, to meet online. I tell the Cursillistas that the small groups are the lifeblood of Cursillo.
We are working to spread Cursillo beyond the English-speaking parishes and into the much larger Chinese-speaking Anglican community. TK and I will make a short presentation to clergy and lay people from Hong Kong Island parishes on March 6th, and then on May 13th Fr Robert, Alison, Evelyn and I will make a more detailed presentation to the diocesan clergy. We hope that the spark you lit when you generously gifted Cursillo to us will grow into a brighter flame.
