Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Activity of the Week

Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • Today’s readings can lead to a family discussion about vocation – God’s call and our response. Talk about listing to God’s call and taking action. Share stories of people you know of who are living their vocations well.
  • Choose one of the following persons to interview: your mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, pastor, or some other person you admire. Ask the person to tell you how he or she knew what special task God had in mind for them. Who helped them? With whom did they discuss it? What were the signs of God’s special call to them? Share your findings with your family.
  • Make “I am a Follower of Jesus” badges with each family member’s name. Form a circle with your family. Take turns sharing what you can do this week to show that you are a follower of Jesus.
  • God speaks to us in many ways – through nature, people, music, events, silence, literature, the Bible, and so on. Discuss the following question with your family: How do you experience being called by God?
