"In virtue of their baptism, all the members of the people of God have become missionary disciples (cf. Mt 28:19)." - Pope Francis Evangelii Gaudium #120
Adult Catholic laity are called to fulfill a critical role in an ever changing world where they bear the primary responsibility for evangelization. Pathways represents the Diocese of Greensburg's long-standing commitment to adult faith formation and nurturing mature discipleship. To this end, 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.
The 2016-17 schedule includes the topics for the twelve evening sessions held at each site. Three workshops and the closing retreat are held at the Bishop Connare Center, Greensburg. The workshops address the vocation, different gifts and the roles of disciples in the mission of Christ and his Church. The closing retreat 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.
