Cursillo Movement and Ultreya

Cursillo is a three day short course in Christianity which begins on Thursday evening and concludes on Sunday. During these three days, talks are given by lay persons and clergy who have spent time working together carefully planning and preparing for the Weekend. The weekend is an opportunity to those who are seeking to strengthen their faith. It provides that opportunity through shared prayer, worship, study, fellowship, laughter, tears, and the gift of God’s love freely and unconditionally. It is held at the Monastery in the spring and fall.

Ultreya is the monthly gathering of Cursillistas, those who have attended a Cursillo, and others who are seeking to make Jesus a part of their everyday life. It is a place to reconnect with others in support and sharing experiences of prayer, study or action.

The St. Pius X Ultreya meets the 2nd Saturday of each month following the 5 PM Mass.
