An Adult Faith Development Programme

Application is now open for the next intake of participants for Pathways. The programme begins this year in Holy Cross College, on Thursday 26th. September 2019 (7.00p.m.– 9.30 p.m.). Places are limited so early application is advisable.

Pathways is a two-year one night a week course for adults of all ages who wish to explore their faith. It runs from late September to May each year, with breaks for Christmas, Easter and mid-terms. There are no exams and no written work. The only requirement is an openness to listening to others and to participate. The cost is €400 for the coming year which may be paid in instalments through the year.

NB  The course fee need not be a problem for anyone – the parish will subsidise up to four participants.  Please apply through the Parish Office.
