Women’s Ultreya

One of the key elements of Cursillo is to build up the Church in the world through groupings of people in their environments. One form of this grouping is Ultreya’s, a Spanish word meaning Onward. This is where members of the small friendship groups (group reunions) come together as a larger community to pray together, read the Word of God, have access to spiritual direction, share, inspire and encourage one another to persevere in our Fourth Day. For those Cursillistas that have not yet joined or formed a small friendship group it enables them to connect with other Cursillistas to form these groups that meet weekly. Ultreya’s are a vital part of our Cursillo movement.

The Cursillo is an encounter with Christ. Correctly applied and overseen the Cursillo Movement can have very positive results in the spiritual revitalization of the world. The Christ-Likeness in a few good people is contagious. The transference of Christ’s values to others in one’s family, school, place of business, etc, is the Christianization of environments that the Cursillo promotes. The goal of the movement is that Christ be that prime influence in society. So it is said that the primary objective of the Cursillo Movement is to develop in adult Christians a consciousness of their power and mission to become leaders in the work of Christian renewal, and to sustain them as they provide a Christian leaven in civic, social and economic life. This “Christianization” of environments is what the Cursillo movement is all about.
