How Did Via de Cristo Begin?

Cursillo began in Spain in the late 1940's, and came to the states a few years later. It began in the Lutheran church when lay people and clergy attended a Catholic Cursillo in 1971. In 1972, totally unaware of each other, two Lutheran Cursillos were held within one month of each other. The first was in Miami, Florida, and the second in Atlantic, Iowa. Once they discovered each other, plans were made to bring them together, along with some others.

In 1986, Lutheran Cursillo was changed to Via de Cristo as a commitment to ecumenism.

Today, there are about forty secretariats (Via de Cristo communities) in the United States, plus Costa Rica, Finland, New Guinea, Latvia and Bolivia.
