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:
