Jackson Country Ultreya
In Activity Center - 7 PM
Second Tuesday of each month, from January - December 2010
An Ultreya is a follow-on activity for those who have experienced a three day Cursillo Weekend, who are called Cursillistas. While the format may vary, there is usually a Bible Reading, then a speaker will talk about his/her post-Cursillo life, followed by some sort of sharing among those in attendance, usually in small informal groups.
Ultreyas are open to all, whether or not one has attended a Cursillo Retreat weekend experience. The idea of Cursillo and Ultreya is to encourage each of us to become better followers of Christ.
The Jackson County Ultreya is held monthly at the Activity Center at St. Mary in Gautier. Each month, the responsibility for running the Ultreya rotates among various parishes in Jackson Country, who provide a moderator and a speaker.
While most attendees are Cursillistas (Catholics who have attended Cursillo), the Ultreya is open to all, whether from St. Mary Parish or not. Parishioners, Cursillista spouses, and friends are welcome to attend, whether Catholic or not.
More information about Cursillo Weekends is found on the Cursillo Website (www.cursillomovementofsouthmississippi.org). The Jackson County Ultreya typically lasts about one hour (7-8 PM), although all are free to socialize longer.
