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.


The 2016 Appeal Letter was mailed out in November. Our Annual Appeal helps us to host weekends and help to keep the cost down. If you didn't receive a letter in the mail, it may be because you have moved recently and it was returned. You can download a copy here. Please help Lutheran Via de Cristo of Minnesota by making a tax-deductable donation. No amount is too small.


The June newsletter is now available here!
