The Ultreya gathers together groups from a particular region and provides a place for continued fellowship with one another, a place where the community can come together once a month to share with one another their walk with Christ.

In a climate of friendship, members share their life experiences based on the three tenets of Cursillo life: i.e.: Prayer, Study and Action, or based on a passage from Scripture. This sharing can be contemplative in nature or may deal with an evangelizing experience. These sharings from real-life experiences serve as examples to all of us of the challenge which Jesus lays before His followers: “Go and do likewise.”

As its name implies, the Ultreya is a call to move forward and to keep the flame of Christ burning brightly.
