Annual Gathering

Mark your calendars for July 21-24, 2022 for the Via de Cristo Annual Gathering at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas.

This will be our first opportunity to meet in person as a community in three years. There will be worship services, keynote speakers, workshops, as well as opportunities to catch up with old friends and make new ones. We will be complying with whatever health regulations are required by local authorities and the university at that time.

Registration is Now Open

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

The Via de Cristo Ministry includes a structured three-day weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christian people, bringing them to a new awareness of living in God’s grace.
