Today I facilitated a workshop on “Film and Sacraments.” The main purpose of the day-long workshop was to teach participants how to use films to teach the seven Sacraments. As instructional tools, films help to focus on the nature, meaning and purpose of each of the seven Sacraments as well as provide pertinent points for discussion.
The participants were mostly parish-based catechists and religion educators. Aside from teaching them the steps in facilitating self-reflection and group discussion on films and the sacraments, I also demoed to the participants the fundamentals of devising discussion questions so that films will help deepen their understanding of the sacraments.
I used the following slides during the workshop. You are free to download, use and remix them.
