What happens on a Via de Cristo weekend?

 

A Via de Cristo weekend is a three-day journey, beginning on Thursday evening and ending Sunday evening.

 

The participants live, study, worship and commune together daily. There are fourteen talks, nine by lay people and five by clergy, presenting the Christian life, based on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ. The titles of these talks indicate their content: Ideal, Piety, Study, Sacraments, Action, Obstacles to Grace, Leaders, Environment, Life in Grace, Christian Community, and Total Security.

 

Via de Cristo gives those attending a living understanding of basic Christian truths. Participants will enjoy music and singing, food and fellowship, a time for laughter and for prayer and reflection.
