Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
May 22, 2024


Forty days before the Triduum, the Lenten season disposes Catechumens and the faithful to celebrate the paschal mystery through prayer and penitential practices.

Activity of the Week

Fourth Sunday of Lent

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

  • Thank Jesus for the gift of faith. Pray the Stations of the Cross together with your family, or join your parish community in the Stations of the Cross.
  • Make a poster with the words of John 3:16. Use this verse at the beginning of your family prayer this week. Thank God for all God has done for your family.
  • Distribute a sheet of paper to each family member. Ask each person to list ten blessings in his or her life. After a few minutes of reflection, ask each member to share some of his or her blessings. Then make a list of family blessings.
  • Live your faith as a family this week. For example, send a get-well card to someone who is ill, make soup and take it to a homebound person, invite someone who lives alone over for dinner.
