Cursillo Movement of the Archdiocese of Boston
The Cursillo method aims at helping to transform,
in a Christian way, the environments where people live and work through
the involvement of "new men and women" who have become such from their
encounter with Christ. This is a goal of the three day "little course" on Christianity;
in which a team of priests and lay people, supported by the prayer and sacrifices
of the movement's other members, communicated the fundamental truths of the Christian faith in an especially "living way."

Boston Cursillo Fall 2020 Ultreya Invitation
What: Fall Ultreya
When: Friday October 23rd 6:45- 8:00 PM
Where: Over Zoom!
Please join us on Zoom Friday October 23rd at 6:45pm. We will begin promptly at 7.
This is the reunion for the spring Cursillo weekend. This is also an event for our entire community. It is an opportunity for us to "rekindle in us the fire" that we experienced during our own Cursillo weekend.
While our gathering will look a little different, we will still be joining together in song, prayer, and faith sharing. We are delighted to let you know that Fr. Bill Murphy will be our witness speaker for the event. Everyone is encouraged to wear their most colorful De Colores gear!
Due to the virtual nature of our Ultreya, we ask everyone to RSVP to email@example.com no later than Wednesday October 21st. The link will be sent the week of October 19th to all who RSVP.
For those who are new to Zoom, or still learning how it works, we will post instructions on our website. Instructions can also be emailed to anyone who requests them. Maribeth will be holding two Zoom “trial runs” for people who want to get comfortable with the technology before the Ultreya. She will be available on Zoom Wednesday October 14 from 7- 7:30pm and Sunday October 18 from 12- 12:30pm, log in anytime during those hours. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to the Zoom trial runs.
Come on! Ultreya! March Forward! These are the words of Saint Pope John Paul II to the Cursillistas at the World Ultreya in Rome in 2009. Ultreya! Come on, it's not far now! This is the message we share when we meet at our Ultreyas.
- To encourage each other in faith,
- To share lives in friendship,
- To live out Christianity within a community through a reunion, and
- To support each other in following the path of everyday life
Please remember to save the date for our Morning of Prayer!
Saturday November 14th 9:30- 11:30 AM
