The Via Christi Health logo is a visual expression of our mission and values
Inspired by the Gospel and our Catholic tradition, we serve as a healing presence with special concern for our neighbors who are vulnerable.
Our logo evokes the personality of Via Christi. It is gracious (grace-full) and spirited. It is unifying as the three shapes, which call to mind our core values, move together and upward to form a cross. The cross reminds us of our name - Via Christi - and our mission to serve in the Way of Christ. The overall design is alive in its color and dynamic movement, signifying our readiness to respond to the needs of changing times. The design's open space reflects our openness to the movement of God's Spirit, and our reaching out to our neighbors to bring Christ's healing presence.
