    Secreatatiat Report: Fund raising has started for a restricted fund to be used to stipend Clergy and Pilgrims. % of stipend will depend on amounts pledged. Committees have been formed to recommend changes to create a Friday evening thru Sunday afternoon Cursillo format; and the organization of a Spanish language Cursillo using the two day format at the campsite (to reduce cost and time off from work). There was some discussion that the two day format might also be applicable to non-Hispanic Pilgrims.
