Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
June 25, 2024


The twofold character of Advent calls us to prepare for the remembering of the Word made Flesh at Christmas, and directs us to wait with alertness for Jesus’ second coming.

Activity of the Week

Fourth Sunday of Advent

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

  • Mary said "yes" to God’s call without knowing what it would mean.  Her story shows that nothing is impossible with God. Think of one area of your family life that you think is impossible. During prayer time this week, ask God for assistance with that family situation.
  • Gather with your family and say the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary together. Ask Mary to give you the courage to listen to God as she did.
  • Each of us has a place in the unfolding story of our family history. How have you carried on the story of faith in your family?
  • Review the Hail Mary with your children. Make sure they can each say it from memory.
