Philadelphia Cursillo

One of the unique aspects of the Cursillo Movement is the ability to come together regularly with others who are working to include God in the everyday moments of their lives. Through planned meetings we come to know one another and encourage one another in our efforts to live the primary Charism of the Cursillo Movement which is to help Christians to be Christian.

There are ways to do this regularly within the Cursillo Movement: Please note that these groups are for anyone who is interested in ongoing Spiritual Formation.  You do not have to have made a Cursillo Weekend in order to attend Group Reunion and Ultreya.

Group Reunions are small groups of men or small groups of women who meet regularly in order to share the spiritual journey. In the Philadelphia Cursillo we have new groups forming all the time. We also have groups that have been meeting regularly for over twenty years.

Ultreya is the Spanish Word meaning “keep on going”. Ultreya are made up of both male and females in the area coming together to share their Spiritual Formation. We are also encouraged to visit Ultreyas from other areas.
