Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
May 28, 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 Transfiguration of the Lord

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

  • In the Gospel, God’s voice comes from a cloud saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him” (Matthew 17:5). Invite family members to share how they listen to Jesus.
  • Place a cross near the entrance of your home. Talk together about how this symbol serves as a reminder to listen to Jesus and allow him to transform your life. As family members enter and leave your home, you will be reminded to love God and others as Jesus did.
  • With the more relaxed schedule of summer, this is a perfect time to invite another person or family to join your family at Mass or another parish event. Talk together about whom you might invite. If appropriate, invite the person or family to Mass followed by breakfast or lunch together.
