What is Ultreya?
 
Ultreya is a Spanish word, derived from the original Latin word meaning ONWARD.  It was commonly used 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, often held after a Cursillo experience.  The gathering provides 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 three tenets of Cursillo life: Prayer, Study and Action. The Ultreya should be the place where we receive the nourishment we need for our spiritual and evangelical journey.
