Understand the stages of the Pathways process by expanding the sections below.

  • Progressive Formation focuses on the initial steps of formation, the proclamation of the kerygma and a foundational catechesis on the Creed. 
  • Our immediate formation is focused on preparation for a specific sacrament and is designed to be experienced right before its reception.
  • Our ongoing formation is designed to aid the lifelong development of faith within a family.


Understand the language we use to describe our content by expanding the sections below.

  • Family Meeting
    • The Family Meeting structure includes: a gathering ritual, opening prayer, check-in, experiential activity, teaching, and closing prayer. Each family meeting is designed to take 20-40 minutes and is designed for the entire family to participate together.
  • Parent Meeting
    • The Parent Meeting structure includes: an invitation, that often includes an activity to facilitate reflection and conversation, and concludes with a prayer. 
  • Godparent/Sponsor Meeting 
    • The Godparent/Sponsor Meeting structure includes: an invitation, that includes an activity to facilitate reflection, and concludes with a prayer. 
  • Mini-Series
    • Mini-Series are a set of modules which are short, self-guided experiences designed to facilitate study and reflection.
  • Session
    • Sessions consist of hand-on activities, faith sharing, witness talks, teachings, and prayer experiences.  It is a time to model the method in-person, grow community connectedness, and touch base about how the at-home content is going. They are designed to take 1.5-2h each.
  • Mini-Retreat
    • Mini-Retreats consist of a series of parts that include hand-on activities, faith sharing, teachings, and prayer experiences. Provide participants with an extended time to reflect and go deeper. They are designed to take 3-5h each.
