Formation & Renewal Pathways

If you hope to run some kind of faith formation or renewal group in your parish or chaplaincy, then take a look at the Pathways available to you here. These sessions will help people to reflect on the key themes of the Christian faith, and to explore them more deeply in the discussion and readings.

Alternative discussion questions are available for Registered Users in the Resources Section here. These are designed for groups where people have some familiarity with Catholic faith and practice, so they may be helpful for leaders who are running these Formation Pathways.
