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

Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • As a family, discuss the many different names for Jesus, such as Redeemer, Prince of Peace, Good Shepherd, Friend, etc. Which name for Jesus do you like best? Why? Which name for Jesus do you like least? Why?
  • Create a collage that tells about Jesus. Cut pictures, words, or symbols out of magazines or newspapers and paste them on a paper plate. Display the collage in your home as a reminder of who Jesus is for your family.
  • Invite family members to write three sentences which tell something about Jesus. When you gather for family prayer, invite each family member to share one sentence about Jesus.
  • Each day this week pray especially for those who minister in the Church: our Pope, our bishop, our pastor, our deacons, our lay ministers, and all who serve our parish community.
