“Ultreya” is a Spanish word, 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 regular meetings throughout the diocese. The Ultreya gathers together in a climate of friendship, to share life experiences based on the three teachings highlighted by the Cursillo method: Prayer, Study and Action.
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.”
