“Ultreya” – a Spanish word, derived from the original Latin, meaning Onward! It was in common use by pilgrims to greet and to encourage one another along the way.
This word is now used by the Cursillo community to signify the meeting which is held after a Cursillo weekend. Ultreya meetings may be between one or several communities. We invite you to come to any one of our Ultreya’s. For more information please contact the Ultreya leader listed.

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.
