Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
April 15, 2024


During the Christmas season from December 24th until the Sunday after Epiphany, we reflect upon the mystery of love that is made visible in the birth and early childhood of Christ.

Activity of the Week

Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

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

  • Invite family members to tell what they know about the Holy Family.
  • Find a picture of the Holy Family. You can look in your child’s textbook or on the internet. While reflecting on the picture:
    • Talk about how the Holy Family showed their love for one another.
    • Give examples of how your family is like the Holy Family.
    • Explain how your own family is holy.
  • The church teaches that all families are holy. Discuss what all families have in common that make them holy.
  • Together, choose one thing your family will do this week to show your love for each other and live as a holy family.
