Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
May 22, 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

Feast of the Holy Family

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

  • Celebrate your own “holy family.” Plan a family outing and spend the time enjoying one another’s company.
  • Take time to visit elderly or distant relatives. Talk about how you take care of each other in your family. Tell stories about the family that will strengthen your understanding and appreciation of each other.
  • Prepare a meal or a dessert and have the family take it to a Catholic Worker House or battered women’s shelter. Explain the need for all of us to show compassion and love to families in need.
  • Spend time together writing Christmas thank-you notes. End with a prayer of thanksgiving for your family.
