An update on Cursillo in Hong Kong (June-Aug 2023)
HK#6 weekend will take place on August 31st-September 3rd, 2023. It will be our first bilingual Cursillo, and the first since HK#1 that won’t be affected either by Covid or by the 2019 political protests. The team of 14 includes myself, Evelyn and John from HK#1. Evelyn is the leader of our Secretariat, and she’s been wonderful in keeping our young Cursillo community together through this difficult time. Please pray for us, pray that the spirit of Cursillo will continue to renew our faith, and encourage and inspire HK Christians to prayer, study and apostolic action.
Please keep Hong Kong in your prayers and you are welcome to offer palanca for their weekend.
