Forming Catholic identity across generations

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

Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • Talk about the challenges which your family faces at this time? How can you work together to overcome those challenges?
  • Hold a family picnic this week as summer vacation draws to an end or as our society gets ready to return to the regular activities of early autumn. On the picnic, hold a race – like the one suggested in today's second reading. Afterward, talk together about what it means to keep one's eye on the goal in a race.
  • Name the people in your extended family who do not share your faith. Give them a phone call, not to recruit them but to let them know you care about them very much.
