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

Feast of the Presentation of the Lord

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

  • Share the stories the baptisms of each person in the family. If possible, share pictures and other items such as a white garment or a baptismal candle. Parents, explain to your children why this day was so important to you.
  • Take time to visit an elderly family member. Thank them for what they have taught you or modeled for you. Explain how the wisdom and faith this person has shared with your family has made your family stronger.
  • As a family, choose an act of charity to do together. Share the gift of time so that your family can share the light of Christ with others.
  • Discuss the following question: How, when, or where do you see the light of Jesus?
