Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
June 25, 2024


During the Christmas season from December 24th until the Sunday after Epiphany, we reflect upon the mystery of love that is made visible in the birth and early childhood of Christ.

Activity of the Week

Baptism of the Lord

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

  • Our commitment in Baptism is to be a servant of God, spreading the Good News of Jesus to others. Discuss one action that you could do as a family this week to spread the Good News of Jesus to others.
  • Bring out pictures and remembrances of the Baptism of each family member. Then tell the story of those events.
  • Place holy water in a special dish near the entrance of your home. Encourage family members to bless themselves with the Sign of the Cross each time they enter or leave the house. Practice making the Sign of the Cross as a reminder of our Baptism and of our identity as God’s adopted sons and daughters.
  • Discuss these questions: What are we called by our Baptism to become? Where do we get the power to do this? How does the Spirit act in our lives?
