VIA DE CRISTO WELCOMES YOU

 

WHAT IS VIA DE CRISTO

Via de Cristo is a Spanish phrase meaning "Way of Christ."

Via de Cristo is a highly structured, three day weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people and bring them to a new awareness of living in God's grace.   It is a combined effort of lay people and clergy toward renewal of the church.


 

INTERESTED IN ATTENDING A WEEKEND?

Although Via de Cristo is a renewal weekend associated with the Lutheran church, persons from any Christian denomination can attend.  People who attend a weekend for the first time are referred to as “Pilgrims” in recognition of the mutual faith journey.  Pilgrims are sponsored by someone who has already been on a similar weekend. 


If you would like more information about attending a Via de Cristo weekend, contact any of the following to find out more:
