Father Kuroly's speech given on Wednesday, 6/24 regarding the upcoming year and changes:
"Great things are happening for next year including work being done to revive the Celular Card, Blue Books and Normas. Discussions have been done regarding the 50th Anniversary in 2017. Next issue is the one I need you to pay attention to. We knew the day would come. The prices of the bus, the retreats have gone up, therefore the J is $150. HOWEVER, in the past I spoke about fundraising and you've done it well. Therefore for all Jornada REGISTERED parishes the price is $130. So if you are sending Candidates from a Jornada registered Parish it is $130. If not it $150. Registered parishes will take place at the Delegate Retreat. Any delegate or representative that attends the Delegate retreat, are considered a Jornada parish with all the responsibilities and benefits of being a J group. Failure to attend means the group is not registered and will not be bound to any responsibilities nor receive benefits. (Responsibilities- active participants at Jornada events, including one’s presence and participation in the fundraising efforts. Benefit- paying $130 for Candidates) Auxes will not be effected. Mission parishes (established) will be treated like a J group."
