The Leader’s Guide includes a Facilitator’s Guide, all 12 lessons from the participant’s Study Guide, and an Answer Key for the Questions for Understanding. The Facilitator’s Guide explains in detail how to plan, promote, and present the study. You can also register for a free training webinar for all study coordinators and small group facilitators.

For group study, you can present the program in thirteen 90-minute sessions. The first session is orientation and then there are two sessions for each Pivotal Player. Each session includes video viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions.

Each lesson in the Study Guide provides a detailed commentary on Bishop Barron’svideo and “Questions for Understanding" based on the video and on references to Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. There are also several “Questions for Application" in each lesson that help you connect the material to your own life and experience.

Participants read the commentary in their Study Guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion.This preparation can be accomplished either before or after viewing the video, as the Commentary in each lesson is very detailed.

The Leader Guide commentary was compiled under the direction and approval of Bishop Barron.
