Forming Catholic identity across generations

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

Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • Cut a heart shape out of paper for each person in the family. Place a heart on the dinner table where each person sits. Explain that the hearts are there to remind each person that our words show what is in our hearts. If we love each other, we should use kind and loving words with each other.
  • Instead of seeing the faults in our family members, encourage each other to point the good in each other. Ask family members to share one good thing about everyone in the family every day this week.
  • Have a family game night. Invite the youngest family member to choose the game and the oldest to choose the snack. As you play, encourage each other even though you are playing against each other.
  • Pray, thanking God for your family. Invite each person in the family to name what they are most thankful for in each person.
