A catechist was working with Felicity (12) to plan her first prayer service. She took a great deal of time choosing her reading, and finally settled on the Annunciation. She prepared the prayer table, and chose art of the Annunciation. After her reading, she invited everyone to bring to the prayer table something which spoke to her/him of Mary or angels. At the last moment, the catechist decided to participate, too, and grabbed one of the sheep from the sheepfold. The children gathered and explained their choices.
Beatrice (10)-The Scripture booklet of the Annunciation
Tara (12)-the "Luke" book from the bible material
David (10)-The world and cross from the Gifts material, "because Christ came for salvation of the world and forgiveness of sins."
Kevin (11)-The empty sheepfold, because "of all the people in the world, God could have chosen anyone, but chose Mary as the one choice.
Catechist-"And I had the sheep!"
