August 31, 2019 –
Chester Cursillistas welcome you to this year’s National Ultreya being held at our beautiful cathedral in the fine Roman city of Chester which attracts tourists from all over the world.
Built as a fortress in the 1st century A.D. the city is known for its extensive Roman walls made of local red sandstone. A Roman amphitheatre, with ongoing excavations, lies just outside the old city's walls.
The Rows is a shopping district distinguished by 2-level covered arcades and Tudor-style half-timber buildings.
So a lot to explore if you wish to make a weekend trip.
We will not be holding any evening entertainment; the day will close with the Eucharist.
