Spiritual 3-Day Retreat Weekends

Via de Cristo, the Lutheran expression of a spiritual 3-day retreat weekend, is based on the fundamentals of Christianity, concentrating on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ. The focus is not on Via de Cristo itself but on the local church. The objective of the movement is to inspire, challenge and equip local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches and communities.

Victoria Wagner worships at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Great Falls, Virginia. In 2012, she attended the Rainbow Via de Cristo's Women's Weekend #63 and sat at the Table of Galilee. Victoria is the president of A Splash of Elegance, specializing in etiquette classes for all ages, serves her church as a Stephen Ministry Leader, and is the Outreach Coordinator for Rainbow Via de Cristo. In the Spring of 2013, she served as a Table Leader for the Women's Rainbow Via de Cristo Weekend #65. Victoria lives in Reston, Virginia.

She will be assisted by Dave Lambert who worships at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church of Bethesda. He attended Men's Southern Maryland Walk to Emmaus Weekend #15 in 2005 and sat at the table of Peter. He volunteered his culinary arts skills to serve as a Kitchen Cha on Men's Rainbow Via de Cristo Weekend #61 in the Spring of 2013. Dave lives in Potomac, Maryland with his wife, Deborah, who attended Women's Southern Maryland Walk to Emmaus Weekend #16 in 2005 and sat at the table of Anna.

What is the Lutheran Lay Fellowship?

LLF is an organization for women and men, both lay and clergy, active in the Nation's Capital area. “As early as 1936, feeling there was a definite need for closer cooperation between Lutheran laity and clergy, a group of laymen in the Washington, DC. Metropolitan area, organized to hold meetings that would bring pastors and laity closer together. Due to jurisdictional differences as well as ministerial difficulties, very little success was achieved until the fall of 1941. Then the group met and decided to hold a luncheon once a month, invite their friends and bring visitors. The first luncheon was a success, and within three months every Lutheran judicatory was represented…” [From a Lutheran Directory of Metropolitan Washington, DC, published in 1999.]

Today, more than 70 years later, the Lutheran Lay Fellowship of Metropolitan Washington takes pride in knowing that every night, 365 nights each year, more than 700 low income seniors and disabled persons live in safety and friendship in four high rises owned and managed by Fellowship Square Foundation, Inc. By means of annual scholarships and grants, LLF also supports various college and seminary students; it also provides ushering services for major inter-Lutheran events. But most of all, LLF is known far and wide as a place to hear stimulating speakers on timely topics and to make friends from other Lutheran congregations—friendships that last for decades!
