Equipping Catholic Families for Ordinary Time

Immediately following the Solemnity of Pentecost last Sunday, we are officially launched into Ordinary Time! This longer of the two periods of Ordinary Time in the Liturgical Calendar takes us through the whole summer and fall and ends on the Feast of Christ the King; the last Sunday before Advent and the new Liturgical Calendar begins.

While some of us enjoy a slightly less hectic schedule during the summer months, Ordinary Time provides us with an awesome opportunity to delve into Saints and Catechism crafts, refocused prayer time and early prep for First Sacraments next year!

Ordinary Time Links

Here are some of our favorite summary posts for Ordinary Time! No need to tackle all of these ideas…ease into one or two over the summer months.
