Pathways | Nurturing Discipleship

Tuesday Nights / 15 Sessions / 2 Workshops

What is Pathways?

Pathways represents our local Diocese of Greensburg’s long-standing commitment to adult faith formation and nurturing mature discipleship. Pathways participants are invited to explore what it means to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in our own historical time and place; to know the faith, to make it our own, and to share it with others.

What does Pathways involve?

Pathways involves fifteen evening sessions and two workshops. The session topics vary each week and include Scripture, Prayer, Liturgy and the Mystery of God just to name a few. The opening workshop addresses the many callings, different gifts, and roles disciples are called to place in service to the mission of Christ and his Church.  The closing workshop offers participants the opportunity to gather together a final time and reflect upon their Pathways experience, their identity as Christian disciples and how they will continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus and be witnesses to the risen Lord.
