Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ. De Colores. My Palanca to the people of Tasmania comes in this banner. It gave me pleasure, and a lot of time to pray as I sewed. May God fill you with his abundant blessings as you share in this Cursillo walk with Him. My thoughts will be with you. Your sister in Christ, Sue Watts, Gippsland

Made by Carol Romoser, Diocesan Lay Director 2001-2004. Carol writes: "The Cross represents sacrifice, redemption and overwhelming love. It reminds us of the price that Jesus paid for us all. .... The dove represents the Holy Spirit. .... The ribbons represent the rainbow - a symbol of Cursillo - showing the many colours of God's love.

The theme for the weekend was “Who we are in Christ”. Banner made by Gillian Hill (W7A). It could not be decided if it should finish with a question mark (Who we are in Christ?) or with an exclamation mark (Who we are in Christ!). It finished up with a full stop, as that is the common bit of a question mark and an exclamation mark. The banner reflects these options.

Made by Janine Targett (W8). The wording was made general by using 'your' Cursillo. It has been used at subsequent weekends as a welcome banner.
