Cursillo, please feel free to reach out to these members of the Fourth Day
The Cursillo weekend is not an end to itself. It is a starting point that lasts the rest
of your life. It is your effort to bring Christ into the environments in which you
operate. It is a springboard to a long-range practice of the Baptismal Covenant in
the life of the Church which we call, the "Fourth Day".
The Fourth Day is composed of two major elements:
* the Group Reunion and
* the Ultreya.
The Group Reunion is the heart of Cursillo. It consists of a small group of friends
that fosters a faith-based support group that meets weekly to share their faith
The "Ultreya" which is usually held monthly, is a "reunion of the reunions". Ultreyas
are generally held after a weekday Mass (often Saturday's) and include a
brief small group reunion, a witness speaker and some time for fellowship.
Bringing a friend to an Ultreya is a great way to give them an idea of what Cursillo is
all about. We have no secrets. We are simply being deliberate about our Catholic
faith and of being disciples of Jesus.

Chair, Paul Yancey, firstname.lastname@example.org
Ultreya has a cluster of specific nearby parishes associated with it. Of course, anyone
is welcome at any Ultreya, regardless of their home parish. What is important is that
you find an Ultreya that fits into your personal schedule, so you can receive the
nourishment you need on your spiritual journey.
A list of the Ultreyas operating in the Joliet Cursillo can be found on the Ultreyas
Page. Please be aware that from time to time, location and dates may have to be
changed to reflect constraints on Parish resources. Also, some of these Ultreyas may
not operate during summer months. Please check the Home Page for any changes
to time, date and location that may be necessitated.
community. Typically held in early November (or maybe February!), the Ultreya
Grande is a chance to hear a great witness speaker, reunite with friends, share a meal,
share fellowship and maybe even enjoy a little entertainment!
One more thing ... BRING A FRIEND!
