HOW TO RUN GLOBAL HEALING & GLOBAL CARING
These two films are designed primarily as an easy to run parish/group event although individuals will benefit too.
If run as an evening event, it should ideally begin with an 'international shared supper' hosted by the different cultures in the parish (it would be a very positive statement if the ingredients were as ecologically friendly as possible).
Cafe-style tables with cloths, flower and a glass of wine would make a welcoming environment.
Each film is made up of three short film clips (between 10-15 minutes each).
Following the first two clips are on-screen questions for table discussion and the third clip could finish with a prayer from Laudato Si.
Some parishes are showing a section after Mass with coffee over several weeks.
Both Healing and Caring have extra sessions for follow up. We also recommend showing ‘Before the Flood’ (Leonardo DiCaprio) or ‘Earth - One Amazing Day’ (Robert Redford). Both can be found to be purchased on the internet.
CTS have produced a practical free flyer to be downloaded, printed and folded to be given to each guest.
CAFOD have produced a free leaflet which could also be placed on each table.
The excellent CTS booklet entitled Catholics & Our Common Home by Sr Margaret Atkins (one of the Global Healing filmed experts) is the perfect take home resource for further reading and can be ordered on a sale-or-return basis.
Also CTS will supply you with copies of Laudato Si to sell sale or return.
Promotion is key! There are eye-catching promotional fliers & posters designed for you to get printed with your own event details - plus newsletter info and trailers available for free download which could be shown at Mass.
