In this segment of Catechists in Action, Marge Garbacz welcomes her RCIA participants and invites them to prayer. Watch for the following:
- Marge greets the participants with great enthusiasm, letting them know how welcome they are and how enthusiastic she is to be spending time with them
- Marge gives instructions for the prayer and invites the group to pray a prayer written for the parish RCIA process and used over many years at the parish.
- notice the prayer table behind Marge…a simple purple cloth for Lent, a crucifix, a Bible, and a candle
- Marge invites the participants to take lead parts in the litany of thanksgiving
- the prayer is simple, reverent, thoughtful, and brief, setting the tone for the sacred work about to be undertaken.
