Organizational Change

Map of MinnesotaEarly in 2010 the Minnesota Via de Cristo Council decided to divide the state into three geographical areas:

Metro: Consists of the following counties: Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright
North: Consists of areas north of the Metro area and north of I-94
South: Consists of areas south and west of the Metro area and south of I-94

The purpose was to designate which regional District Council is in charge of setting up weekends in any given area of the state. One of the positive effects of this is to make it easier for weekend rectors to find team members by not having to sift through hundreds of pages of the state-wide member roster.

Everyone in our database is assigned in one of the areas if they live inside the state of Minnesota, or within a short distance of the border. Members in North Dakota are in the North District, and those in South Dakota are in the South District.

Does this mean you are tied to that particular area? NO!

If you are interested in being a member of a particular area in which you may not live, please fill in the form below and check the boxes of the two areas in which you want to be a member and submit to the Via de Cristo office. You will be added to that area also so you will show up on the roster for the areas selected.

An example is that we have many people who live in Pine City who live in the North, but work Metro weekends. Even though they have been automatically assigned to the North, they may elect to be part of the Metro also by sending in the form below and checking the North and Metro boxes. You will not be moved from one area to the other. Rather, you will be part of both areas so you will show up on the North and Metro member rosters.

Please fill in all information below to make sure the database is current and accurate.

Thank you!
