Catechists in Action – Marge Leads Discussion

In this segment of Catechists in Action, Marge Garbacz leads her RCIA group in discussion about the Catholic approach to human dignity. Watch for the following:

  • Marge offers comments on the “Mr. Cellophane” song that the group just viewed.
  • The group offers their reactions and experiences of feeling “invisible” or treating others as though they were invisible.
  • Notice how Marge pulls back and allows discussion to flow and how she asks if anyone else has a thought to add before taking control again.
  • Discussion flows from story-telling to sharing insights, all very heartfelt and pertaining to everyday lived experiences.
