Lifelong Catechesis

Forming Catholic identity across generations
June 16, 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

Third Sunday of Easter

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

  • This week find ways to show Jesus that you love him. Pray for one another and give thanks to God for the gift of Jesus.
  • On Sunday we gather together to be strengthened by the Lord and one another. Discuss these questions: How is our family strengthened by the Lord? By each other? How can we find more meaning in the Mass?
  • As a family, cook and enjoy a favorite meal together. Plan a menu that includes a favorite food for each family member. Before the meal, talk about the food of life that Jesus has to offer.
  • Jesus offers himself to us, feeds us, and strengthens us so that we may strengthen others. Have different members of the family help each other do their jobs this week as a way of being supportive and encouraging in the family.
