The Pilgrim's Way
The Pilgrim’s Way is an integrated and comprehensive attempt to give our students the “sticky” faith that comes from relationship with and through Jesus Christ.
Ongoing programs during social distancing
In structuring the Pilgrim's Way, we used 5 foundations on which to build what we teach and when. Using these five foundations, We've created for you some resources for creating a "Social Distanced Christian Community"
If you need any pastoral support, or need assistance of any kind, please reach out to the Good Shepherd clergy. We have a system in place to respond to needs as they arise. If you would like any of us to pray with you, in general or for specific needs, please call us:
