Facilitators' Guide
Guiding Group

The role of the Facilitator will necessarily include organising the group’s access at the session to the resources on screen or in print.

A suggested structure for each Session is:

  1. Preparation of the Focus Space
  2. Prayer
  3. Introduction
  4. Content Explored
  5. Reflection and Discussion
  6. Closing

Groups may decide to meet for one session only to reflect and discuss one presentation, or for a number of sessions. At the first session it is likely that some or all group members will not have seen or explored the MGP microsite: www.mercyglobalpresence.org or be familiar with the concept of Mercy Global Presence. Time will therefore need to be spent in explanation/exploration.

Following are three of many possible approaches to using resources from the theme Cosmos/Cosmology implementing the suggested structure (nos. 1-6). The approach used will depend on the needs, interests and abilities of the group members. Facilitators may, of course, use their own approach with the resources, or choose elements from these three suggested approaches to create a different approach. At the conclusion of the Session the Facilitator or another group member is encouraged to send on ‘what is too good for the group to keep to themselves’ to mgpfeedback@mercyinternational.ie
