God inspired and supports Via de Cristo, and He called each of us to be here to share in it. Just as God chose the Roman Catholic Church in Spain to give birth to this remarkable method of Christian renewal through His Holy Spirit, this same Holy Spirit has supported each of us throughout the weekend — opening our ears and hearts to Christ’s message, inspiring the palanca and love which we have shared in such abundance.
So Via de Cristo is led, first of all by the Holy Spirit. The Gold Coast Via de Cristo also has a Secretariat of lay people which selects the Rectors and Rectoras and Spiritual directors, who then assemble their Via de Cristo teams. The Secretariat also handles bookkeeping, supplies and other logistics, and communications within the Cursillo community. Our mission after weekends is to go right back into the organizations we already belong to—our families, churches, jobs, and neighborhoods. That’s where God needs us to share the love and joy that He has showered upon us in this Via de Cristo weekend.
