Q: With the Rite of Acceptance this Sunday, we omit the penitential act, but the Gloria?
A: The last time we did it here, we omitted the Gloria. The problem is that the RCIA does not describe very well what we’re supposed to do. I think another solution is to use the Gloria as the entrance song that accompanies the entrance of the community with the catechumens into the nave of the church (see the end of #60, which calls for some appropriate song). That way it’s still included in the mass without unduly lengthening the liturgy.
