We have a Rectoress, a Weekend and a location:  
Rectoress: Josie Hiltz
Weekend of February 14-17, 2019
Holy Family in Sparta 
We need you to pray to see if God is prompting you to be a Rector. God speaks to us in small ways so we really need to be in the silence and to listen. Maybe God is telling someone that you would be right for this, listen to them, then pray. Lastly remember that in order to work a weekend you must go to School of Leaders at least 3 times in a year. They are held on the 3rd Monday in Sparta, Thursday in Pewamo and Wednesday at St John Vianney. All School of Leaders start at 7pm. 
Steve Hiltz was elected to the Vice Lay Directors position at the May board meeting.  We meet on the first Thursday at 6 pm at st. Isidore's.  Meeting typically last 1-1.5 hours.  
We are looking for people to host Ultreyas in 2018 at their parish.  If you are interested, please contact Teresa Border
We are updating our Parish Representative list.  We hope to have at least one person from every parish or parish cluster in the
Grand Rapids Diocese.  If you are willing to be added to this list, please contact Teresa Border
The Cursillo Secretariat Board of Grand Rapids has open positions.  If you are interested, or being called to serve, in one of these capacities, please contact a board member.  We are looking to fill several positions.  Please pray about it and please consider.
