Dominic Wiseman R.I.P
Cursillo in Christianity for England and Wales was built on sound foundations by many Cursillistas throughout the country. Leading and encouraging them was a stalwart team of national Officers.
Prominent of these was Dominic Wiseman who was an exceptional and guiding light as our National president in the 1990’s Dominic was one of those who contributed to the excellent C.T.S. booklet
entitled “ Cursillos in Christianity” one of a series of helpful booklets concerning the new movements in the life of the church.
Dominic was an effective and erudite President and those who followed are in his debt for his style of leadership.
Sadly Dominic died recently and we mourn his sad loss. Out thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family at this sensitive time
His funeral will be at 12 midday on Friday 18th January, 2019 at Sacred Heart RC Church, Leighton Buzzard LU 7 1HZ
