From ALTD Lay Director Karen Weis
One of the outcomes hoped for after attending a Tres Dias weekend is engagement in worthwhile Christian endeavors. Sometimes that’s making a deeper commitment to your church, engaging in Christian mission service, and serving Jesus wherever He leads.
A Cursillo-based weekend held in and outside of prison is a jail ministry called Kairos. If you’ve attended a Tres Dias weekend as a participant, you are qualified to serve on team for a Kairos weekend.
We received the following formal request for ALTD women to pray about and consider serving in Kairos Outside, Wisconsin Chapter:
“The Christian servants/volunteers of Kairos Prison Ministry have been called by God to share the love and forgiveness of Christ to incarcerated men and women. During a 3½-day Weekend program of talks, meditations, music, listening and loving, a Christian community will start to form. The servants/volunteers are blessed to be a blessing to the Participants.
Kairos Outside provides a safe weekend for women whose lives have been impacted by incarceration. Kairos Outside encourages and supports its Guests through the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. We really need someone to train and be a leader of a 2019 weekend.
The Kairos Chapter of Wisconsin needs advisers from the Tres Dias community to advise and assist us.
Our next weekend is this year May 5th - 7th.
The team meetings are 3/4/17. 3/18/17. 4/8/17, 4/22/17
UMC Oshkosh - 700 Lindwood St. Oshkosh, WI
We need someone to be an observing leader #2 to start training to lead the 2019 weekend as soon as possible. This will involve extra training that Cheryl can tell you about.
The 2018 weekend will be in October.
The 2019 weekend will be set with the help of an Observing leader #2.
If you are interested in serving or would like more information, please contact Cheryl Lebakken
