Isolation Enquiry

A social enquiry based on the Cardijn method of the See Judge Act.

It was conducted by a group of Christians who became aware of a problem occurring amongst family members, friends, neighbours, and workmates because of lockdowns in their societies.

This group would meet weekly with a comprehensive agenda.

The primary purpose of the meeting is to identify those experiencing isolation amongst family, friends, etc.  Each member would identify problems faced by their contacts. Discussions would follow about those problems and decisions made to implement an action or a form of support.

Facts and realities are crucial; the meeting would not be a general type of discussion group.


Open and welcome


Gospel reading and discussion.

Inquiry Isolation


Do I have any personal experience of isolation?

Do I know of family or friends who do feel isolated?

Do you, they, speak openly of these issues?

Do you, they speak of serious effects of this isolation?

Are family relationships affected?

Are there health issues involved?

Are there economic issues involved?


Do you think these issues should be a concern for Christian family and friends?


Can you offer any form of support to people experiencing these issues? What can you do in any particular case?

Is there an opportunity within the local parish to offer support?

Next meeting
