Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
May 22, 2024


The sound of Alleluias fills the 50 days of Easter Sunday to Pentecost as we give thanks for the gift of our salvation. The Easter Triduum recalls the passion and resurrection of Christ in the sacred journey from Holy Thursday to Easter Vigil. "Dying he destroyed our death. Rising he restored our life."

Activity of the Week

Sixth Sunday of Easter

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

  • Take out any symbols or pictures of your Confirmation or the Confirmation of other members of the family. Talk about what you remember about the day. Discuss how the Holy Spirit was present that day and how you continue to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life today.
  • Discuss with your family what actions manifest the presence of the Holy Spirit in the world today. Make a list of such actions. Talk with your family about making a conscious effort to manifest the Spirit to others throughout the week.
  • Pray together the Prayer of the Holy Spirit. Teach it to those members of the family who do not know it yet:
    • Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And you will renew the face of the earth. Amen.
