Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, After 2 months of studying and analyzing the operation and finance of the National Cursillo Center (NCC), I came up with a solution to improve the effectiveness of the NCC: the $3/year donation campaign. There are more than one million Cursillistas who have lived a Cursillo Weekend in the United States. If 10% of the total Cursillistas donate $3/year for the National Cursillo Movement, miraculous things will happen:

• The NCC will achieve its financial and operational stability.

• The NCC will have the budget to revive dormant diocesan movements and to establish the Cursillo movements in some areas.

• The NCC will have the budget to translate good books for each language and establish effective communication channels by means of audio and video technology.

• The National Encounter will be more affordable for every Cursillista. Your donation will help to offset some expenses of the Encounter and therefore drive the cost down.

• The NCC will credit back 25% of your donation toward your Lay Director's ticket to the National Encounter. For example, if 400 Cursillistas in your Diocese donate $3/year, the Center will issue a national encounter voucher of $300 to your Lay Director.

• Similarly, the NCC will credit 3% of your donation toward your Regional Coordinator's ticket to the National Encounter.

• Indeed, your $3/year donation will send about 300 key leaders from all over the U.S to the National Encounter so that they can synchronize with the National Secretariat in terms of the Cursillo charism, literature and materials, methodology, policy and future strategic planning for the National Cursillo Movement.

The NCC is extending the deadline of $385 registration fee until June 15, 2013 to encourage all Lay Directors to attend the National Encounter this year. You can send your Lay Directors and/or delegates to the National Encounter by donating online at https://www.natl-cursillo.org/donate/. Your donation is tax deductible. We're ONE and inseparable in the Mystical Body of Christ. The National Cursillo Center is experiencing challenges and really needs your support. A $3/year or $15 donation for the next 5 years will move our beloved Cursillo Movement forward to the next level. The miracle will happen and it's indeed in your hands now. Your prompt action is greatly appreciated!

De Colores!
