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-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

  • Jesus showed us how to serve by serving others. As a family, plan how you can show God’s love by serving others. Keep your eyes open and look for opportunities to serve at home, in school and in your community. Decide on one way to serve others this week.
  • Ask your family to suggest names of people in your parish, or community who serve the needs of others. Write a thank-you note to one of these persons, thanking them for their service to others.
  • Make a helping-hand coupon. On the coupon, write one thing you will do to help someone in your family. Cut the coupon out and give it to the person you will help.
  • Watch for stories in magazines or newspapers which tell about someone whose suffering led them to reach out to others. Share the stories with your family.
