Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
May 22, 2024

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

Solemnity of Christ the King

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

  • We are children of God. If the Lord our God is King, and we are God’s children, then we must belong to a royal family. Make a crown out of construction paper for your table centerpiece. Every time a family member acts in a Christian way, have that person color a jewel on the crown. Hopefully by the end of the week, the crown will be filled with jewels of good acts.
  • Pray the Lord’s Prayer together as a family. Place emphasis on the words “your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Remind your family to be aware of God’s Reign in the world this week.
  • The Church is called to be a sign of God’s Reign. Wherever there is violence, hatred, poverty and despair in the world, we are called to bring hope. Discuss with your family what each person is willing to do or willing to give up in order to help build the reign of God on earth, where you live.
  • Say the Glory Be each evening as a prayer of praise for the kingdom of God.
