Many of Catholic Mobilizing Network’s resources rely on strong small group facilitation strategies. Successful group facilitation is not the easiest or most intuitive process for many people. Those that do it well have often developed their skills over years of facilitating many types of groups.

From Harm to Renewal: Restorative Justice Workshop
Catholic communities are, by their very nature, intergenerational. Our membership, liturgical celebrations and Sacramental moments bring together generations of family members as the faith is passed on from oldest to youngest. Family workshops, like CMN’s “The Advent of Mercy,” make this intergenerational character a defining feature, incorporating various age groups in a hands-on learning process designed to engage all members of the family unit.
“Restorative justice” repairs the harm caused when a crime is committed. It is a community-centered approach to justice that views crime as a violation of people and relationships, rather than simply a violation of law.
CMN's Prayer for Mercy is available for download as a sheet of 4 prayer cards.
