Catechists in Action – Marge Introduces the Theme for the Session

In this segment of Catechists in Action, Marge Garbacz introduces the theme for the evening’s RCIA session (Human Dignity), drawn from Practice Makes Catholic. Watch for the following:

  • Marge nicely ties in the theme for the evening, human dignity, with the Gospel reading just reflected on (the Man Born Blind).
  • Marge describes how I introduce the theme of human dignity in Practice Makes Catholic by talking about a song from the musical Chicago: Mr. Cellophane to emphasize that too many people in our society are “invisible” (like Lazarus who sat by the table of the rich man in Jesus’ parable)
  • Marge elaborates on what cellophane is! 🙂
  • Marge shows the Mr. Cellophane scene from the movie Chicago…nice use of technology (she makes this a regular feature in each session…usually a brief YouTube clip)
