Analysis of Reality

October 2, 2012

The second day of the seminar was fully devoted to “analysis of reality”.  Fr. John Kilcrann, CSSp (Congregation of the Holy Spirit) introduced the topic by sharing about the foundations of the social teachings of the Church.

Summary of Fr. John’s presentation:

  • Brief historical grounding
  • A possible methodology: Pastoral Cycle / Cycle / Spiral
  • Each of the stages of the Pastoral Cycle
  • Film about the situation of Alberta: Canada’s oil sands with Bruce Parry, followed by social analysis exercise by groups
  • Theological considerations of the methodology
  • Group discussion: response of faith (and spirituality)
  • Plenary discussion: planning and evaluation in the ministry
