Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is an Ultreya?

"Ultreya" is a Spanish word, derived from 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 meetings that are held after a Cursillo Weekend.

An Ultreya is a gathering of Cursillistas from one or several communities. Its purpose is to provide continuity by contributing to the maintenance of the Cursillo spirit and by revealing the reality of the living Church. In a climate of friendship, members share their life experiences based on the Cursillo tripod of Piety, Study and Action. 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."

Some Ultreyas are preceded by an optional pot-luck dinner, which serves as a time to catch up and enjoy each other’s company.

Ultreyas are generally held monthly, although they can be held more frequently depending on the desire of the local community.
