Activity of the Week

Third Sunday of Lent

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

  • Have a family discussion about anger. When is anger useful or justified? When is anger destructive? Have each family member talk about how he or she can communicate his or her angry feelings in a positive way.
  • Participate in the parish reconciliation service during Lent with your family. Remind children that God always loves us and is always willing to forgive us.
  • Talk about ways your family can show respect for God’s house. Discuss the following questions: What should I do in God’s house?
  • Help family members learn about ways we honor God in church. Talk about ways we honor God at home.
