  • João Pedro Barbosa Santos (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The pilgrim Church is a living body, integrated into the Dynamics of different cultures, evolving and adapting throughout History. We also live, today, in times that require change and adaptability so that all members of the Communities – as well as those who are apart – may experience the true encounter with Jesus. In this study we propose an analysis the focuses in two pastoral models (Alpha –Divine Renewal – and Jesus Groups), seeking to ascertain the benefits, strategies, and the results achieved in evangelization and spirituality. Finally, inspired by the previous research, we drew some proposals so that Parishes (our point of departure and arrival) may sprout the necessary fruits of growth.
