Opportunity for Youth Group Service Project
Located in the city of Goshen on 17 acres of wooded land, Pathways has opportunities for a limited number of church youth groups to spend an evening performing service, engaging in spiritual practices, and experiencing fellowship. We can accommodate groups as large as 12 or 15 youth, with sponsors.
A typical evening schedule is:
7:00 - 7:45 Light work in the woods
7:45 - 8:15 Prayer practice: Walking the labyrinth
8:15 - 9:00 Bonfire and fellowship time
Pathways staff supervises the work, leads the prayer practice, and hosts the bonfire. Pathways will also provide any specialty tools needed for the work, as well as insect repellent and special safety gear if needed.
We expect youth group sponsors to
Examples of work performed by groups include gathering and burning brush (from invasives), raking leaves, and spreading mulch.
Please contact Evan Miller (email@example.com or 574-536-0970) to discuss opportunities for your youth group.

St. Francis Animal Blessing
October 8, 3:00pm
Each October, near the Feast Day of St. Francis (Oct. 4) you are invited to bring your pets to Pathways for an annual blessing and walk through the woods. St. Francis of Assisi had the marvelous talent of seeing the entire world – every living thing – as a beautiful gift from God. He called the sun, the moon, and all the creatures of the earth his brothers and sisters. In honor of his feast day, we bless our beloved and faithful friends. All are welcome!
