Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
April 15, 2024


The sound of Alleluias fills the 50 days of Easter Sunday to Pentecost as we give thanks for the gift of our salvation. The Easter Triduum recalls the passion and resurrection of Christ in the sacred journey from Holy Thursday to Easter Vigil. "Dying he destroyed our death. Rising he restored our life."

Activity of the Week

Fourth Sunday of Easter

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

  • Jesus, the Good Shepherd, shows us the way. Together, compose a prayer that describes how your family follows the way of Jesus. Tell of how Jesus, the Good Shepherd, guides you in your daily lives.
  • Look up sheep or goats in the encyclopedia, or find a storybook about them. Read the text or the story together, and discuss how animals depend on us to take care of them. Remind family members that Jesus tells us that he is the Good Shepherd. Talk about how Jesus takes care of us.
  • Reflect on how Jesus leads us by means of his Church. How are our leaders like shepherds? What qualities of the Good Shepherd do you bring to the Church?
  • Use Psalm 23 as your family prayer this week.
