Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Activity of the Week

Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Choose one of the following activities as a way to further reflect on the Sunday readings:

  • Together with your family, discuss the phrase “Many are invited but few are chosen.” This week do one thing as a family to help others, thereby making this world a better place for someone else.
  • Plan a dinner party and give thanks to God as a family. Plan the guest list together and get everyone involved in sending out invitations. Talk about what foods to serve and how to decorate. Use a special meal prayer of thanksgiving for the occasion.
  • Participate in the Banquet of the Lord by attending Sunday Eucharist together as a family. Talk to the family about preparing our hearts for the Eucharist. What can we do to be better prepared for the liturgy celebration? Arrive at church a few minutes early to prepare for this special Eucharistic meal.
  • Check with the parish office to see if there is an elderly person who needs transportation to Sunday Mass. Invite that person to join your family for the liturgy.
