Activity of the Week

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • In the miracle of the feeding of the multitude, God shows us how to feed a hungry world. How do you share with others what you have?
  • To help your family provide for the needs of others, place a “love offering” jar in your home. When anyone has a few pennies, they could put them in the jar. When the jar is full, the money could be given to the local Catholic Relief Services to help feed hungry people.
  • Take a special dish or a meal this week to a family that is dealing with a loss or an illness.
  • In place of grace, pray together the Lord’s Prayer and pause for a moment after the words, “Give us this day, our daily bread.” Give thanks for the gift of food and for the gift of the Eucharist.
