Redding/Ultreya November 23rd

Remember your Cursillo? The purpose of that momentous weekend was to raise up Christian witnesses so that they (YOU) could bring the world to Jesus Christ  by transforming the environment in which they (YOU) live. It's time for your booster shot.. The doctor gave you a god "bill of health" but you need to consider the appropriateness of getting a booster shot at least 2 or 3 times a year. The ULTREYA is your spiritual booster shot! And it is not painful! It's here to make you feel good about where you are or help you get back on track, or to share your successes or setbacks. We all learn by sharing in Christ's journey with us. Join us for a time of singing God's praises, sharing God's work in our life or in the lives of others and " in the breaking of bread"'

WHERE?   All Saints Episcopal Church located at 2150 Benton Dr., Redding, 96003.  10A.M. to 2P.M.

Please contact Ken Westrick at or call me at (530) 262-8779to indicate whether you are coming.  Lunch will be "potluck". We will furnish coffee and tea.



Ultreyas - please submit information on your Ultreya and activities to




Making one’s Cursillo is both an exciting, eye opening renewal, and a “top of the mountain” experience.

This experience brings many joys and many responsibilities.  The responsibility brought forth here is sponsorship of other Christian leaders to this weekend renewal.  It is in sponsoring others that the Cursillo is nurtured into an ever-widening force to bring Christ to our environments and our environments to Christ.

•  A sponsor needs to be an active Christian leader witnessing to their love and relationship with  Christ.

•  Sponsors need to know the person they will sponsor, and to have seen in them the qualities of a person whose walk with our Lord will be enhanced by the Cursillo experience.

•  Sponsors will know that Cursillo, although a wonderful support, is not a place where people are sent to get over things, or get their lives together.  It is not a place that will help resolve a stressful life.

•  Sponsors should discuss Cursillo with their candidates to be, and to answer any questions about Cursillo.

•  Sponsors should send candidates from their area, to make the fourth day follow-up more workable.

At the weekend, sponsors make sure the candidate has everything they will need for the weekend.

•  They will provide transportation to and from the weekend.

•  They will provide for the cares and needs of any members of the candidate’s family during    the weekend.

•  They will provide support, prayers, and personal palanca for the weekend.

•  They will attend Mañanitas, Clausura and any other events that include the candidates and the Cursillo community.

After the weekend, sponsors are responsible to direct the candidates to the fourth day activities, help them to join or form a Group Reunion and take them to an Ultreya and to provide transportation or whatever is needed to keep the support going.  If you don’t think you can provide this fourth day opportunity then perhaps you should reconsider sponsorship and work on your own fourth day life.

It is hard to sponsor multiple candidates and should be avoided unless there are co-sponsors.  It is not easy to sponsor a candidate and work on the team for their weekend.

            Above all PRAY and think UPWARD AND ONWARD.  DE COLORES!
