Forming Catholic identity across generations
April 23, 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

Second Sunday of Lent

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

  • Take a family drive to a place that captivates you. Spend time viewing the beauty of the spot. While there, share the Gospel story of the transfiguration.
  • As a family, brainstorm goals that you want God to help you with. List the goals on a sheet of paper. For each goal, discuss: Why is this goal important to the family? What must the family do in order to accomplish this goal? How can each member of the family participate?
  • Make a cross for the refrigerator as a reminder that there is no struggle this week that cannot be overcome with the help of Jesus.
  • Ask each family member to name one thing that he or she would like God’s help with now. Allow time for each person to complete the sentence, "Ten years from now I would like to be..." Ask each person to name one thing he or she is doing now that will help to make that dream come true.
