The Cursillo Weekend is not an end to itself. It is a starting point that lasts the rest of your life. It is a springboard to a long-range practice of the Baptismal Covenant in the life of the Catholic Church called Fourth Day. The Fourth Day is compossed of three major elements:
The Group Reunion, the heart of Cursillo, is a small group of friends(usually 3-5) who meet weekly, and who hold each other accountable for their spiritual journey. They report on their piety, their study and their apostolic action. A bonding develops that institutes a strong support group for life.
The Ultreya, which is usually held monthly, is a "reunion of the reunions". It provides support and builds community by allowing the sharing of communal experiences.
Spiritual Direction is an important element of the Cursillo Movement. It is a commitment to seek out skilled lay persons or cleric for spiritual direction to provide help in deepening their union with Christ.
