In 1948, the first great Spanish Cursillo pilgrimage was held at the St. James Shrine at Santiago de Compostela Cathedral in Spain. The pilgrimage set a tone. The spirit of the pilgrimage is a spirit of restlessness, of dissatisfaction with spiritual lukewarmness. A spirit of moving onward was born. And so, ULTREYA was born; this Spanish word means “onward” or “keep on going.”

Ultreya began as a cry of encouragement, to encourage each other in their pilgrimage to the Father. The Ultreya spirit is also a spirit of brotherhood among fellow pilgrims who are striving together to reach the goal of a life fully given to the love of God and man.

Having contact with others who have the same faith ideal, blesses us with the support and encouragement that strengthens our Christian foundation and growth so we can keep on going on our journey.

It has been said, that an isolated Christian is a paralyzed Christian. Sharing with others is the best gift that we have—the knowledge and love of Christ, actively bringing the Kingdom of God into the world.
