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

Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

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

  • Pray the Sign of the Cross with your family. Use the prayer to bless your children at bedtime. As you pray the Sign of the Cross, trace a small cross on your child’s forehead with your thumb.
  • Make a holy water font or dish for your home to remind yourselves that you come and go each day in the name of the Trinity. Get some holy water from church. Practice making the Sign of the Cross slowly and reverently. Talk about its meaning for us.
  • The Church often uses symbols to summarize what we understand about the truths of our faith. Next time you go to church, arrive early and find symbols of the Trinity in your church. What do they tell you about our belief in the Holy Trinity?
  • St. Patrick is known for his explanation of the Trinity to the people of Ireland. Read a book about the missionary work of this saint.
