Diocesan Ultreya!

  • St. Philip's Episcopal Church 85 Fairway Drive Nashville, TN 37214 (map)

Cursillo :  pronounced Cur-see’-yo!  This is a Spanish word that means “short course” – Cursillo weekends are a short course in the Christian faith.

Ultreya! (Ull-tray’-uh)  - It’s an expression you learn when you go on a Cursillo weekend.  It comes from a medieval Spanish word (spelling was certainly different) and it means Onward!

People who’ve gone on a Cursillo weekend use the term Ultreya to mean a reunion – a group gathering that includes a bunch of people who’ve all “made” a Cursillo weekend, as well as inviting anyone who’s interested in Cursillo… as well as anyone interested in just getting together with a bunch of nice church friends!  Therefore, an Ultreya is a good excuse for getting together around our faith and sharing some good food, too!

Cursillo Commission members from the diocese will be here; we’re inviting everybody to come. Potluck dinner at 5:00 p.m., with a chicken and a vegetarian entrée provided.
