1.2 A JPIC Orientation Manual for Promoters: As part of the JPIC Commission Plan, congregations are encouraged to develop an Orientation Manual for their JPIC Promoters. The process one uses to develop education materials can often be as important as the final results. Try involving as many of your members as possible. The OFM Franciscans have made their Manual available to help encourage and support you in such an endeavour. An introductory letter to the project and some support resources are available in English and Spanish at: http://jpicformation.wikispaces.com/EN_JPICCongGuidelines If there is need for clarification contact the JPIC office.
