The Central Virginia Cursillo Center is in need of Palanca Coordinator.  Our Center relies on a volunteers to keep our operations running smoothly and to ensure that our weekends are successful for both team members and candidates.

Palanca Coordinator - If you regularly attend Ultreyas and would be interested in coordinating the receipt of palanca letters from other Cursillo communities to provide to our candidates on weekends and to send palanca letters to other Cursillo communities, this is the position for you.  It takes 15 minutes weekly (30 mins when you print & scan palancas for Ultreya's). Four times a year it takes about 3 hours to prepare palancas for each Cursillo weekend & the time needed to get the palancas to the team. There is also the cost of printer ink & paper.  Here are the four subtasks for this volunteer position:

a) Post our weekends on the Palanca Request page at 216-825-1808 up to 3 months in advance of each scheduled weekend in our community.

b) Print the palanca letters that you receive and get them to the team before the start of their weekend to be used in the Spiritual Director’s talk.

c) Sign up at 330-697-5239 to receive a weekly list of upcoming Cursillo weekends.  E-mail a general Palanca letter to each community on this list.  A sample Palanca letter is available that can be used and/or edited.

d) Print about four general Palanca letters and take these to the next Ultreya for our cursillistas to sign. This will require you to be able to scan and email each signed Palanca to the communities that have requested Palanca.

Thank you for your consideration in supporting the Central Virginia Cursillo Center.
