    How long known Pilgrim?
    Why are you sponsoring this pilgrim for Via de Cristo?

    Sponsoring a Pilgrim is both a joy and a responsibility. Remember – Via de Cristo is not structured to solve a pilgrim’s deep-seated personal problems. It is designed to provide to those attending a deeper understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Select your Pilgrims with this structure in mind.
