The Way

You are invited to come along the journey.







The Way is for you if …

  • You would like to explore what it means to follow Christ
  • You would like to explore and know more about the Episcopal Church
  •  You are new to the Cathedral, and desire baptism or would like to grow in faith
  •  You have been around Church for a long time, and would like to renew your journey of faith

Community and sharing is at the center of The Way. Each evening begins with a simple meal and table conversation. This is followed by a learning, small group Bible study and discussion. Links are made between daily life and work and the worship and practice of the church. Emphasis is given to understanding what it means to live into one’s baptismal promises. Sessions conclude with quiet reflection and prayer.

The Way takes its name from the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament where the followers of Christ are referred to as people “belonging to the Way.”  The Way is a process for faith formation, or catechumenate, at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral. Persons participating in The Way may prepare for baptism or affirmation of faith at the Great Vigil of Easter.
