CURSILLO, a Spanish word meaning "a short course," is a movement within the church intended to help Christians know God's love and grace and to help these same Christians discover and live out their personal vocations in the world.
Cursillo is a movement of the church. Its purpose is to help those in the church understand their individual callings to be Christian Leaders.
St. Joseph parish is blessed with many members who have been a part of Cursillo and church spiritual growth.
ULTREYA is a meeting of Cursillo members once monthly.
In the Queens Deanery we meet every third Monday at 7:30 pm at St. Joseph’s Church, St. James the Less Church or Grace Church in Jamaica.
"Ultreya" is a Spanish word meaning "moving upward."
"De Colores" is a Spanish expression which means in colors and also is a song titled "De Colores!" which was very popular at the time of the first Cursillo on the island of Majorca (a beautiful island in the Mediterranean sea where spring is a real enchantment of colors). "De Colores" calls forth joy caused by the discovery of God’s love and the presence of Christ in ourselves and in others.
