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

Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • Make a coupon for each member of your family. Draw a heart on each coupon. In the heart, draw a picture of something you will do for them to bring Jesus' healing touch.
  • Jesus wants us all to be whole and healthy. What part of your life would you like Jesus to touch and heal?
  • Ask your child to tell you about people he or she knows who may feel left out. Plan with your child ways he or she can reach out to this person. Be sure to demonstrate to your child the love and support and confidence you have in him or her. Share with your child his or her success in reaching out to others. Let your child know that you are proud of him or her.
  • Discuss these questions with your family: Who are the outcasts in our community? Why are they considered outcasts? What should be a Christian's approach to them? What is our family's response?
