To Give is to Receive’ The Merits of Ka-Upod: An Investment with Bountiful Gains

Abstract

‘To give is to receive’ - a phrase that everyone is familiar with. In the case of minor seminarians, it may be a way of life for them. They are being molded as they aspire to devote their lives to be ministers of the Lord. A contextualized Peer Facilitation Program entitled Ka-UPOD was facilitated to 20 minor seminarians in a 12-week duration. They underwent various modules aiming to enhance vital aspects of their personalities. This study aimed at establishing an eidetic description of the selected minor seminarians of their concept of the Peer Facilitation Program. It employed the phenomenological approach in order to capture the essence of the program to the seminarians. The selections were asked to maintain a journal and a focus group discussion was also facilitated. The field texts were subjected using the Collaizi’s method. The critical friend technique and member checking procedure were also employed in order to attain a triangular consensus of data. The study resulted with the Clover Leaf of Giving-Receiving model of the Peer Facilitation Program.
