The theme for July is "Make Ordinary Time extraordinary!"
The Church liturgical calendar celebrates Ordinary Time during the summer months. Actually, Ordinary Time begins the Monday after Pentecost and concludes with the first Sunday of Advent. Far from being “ordinary” Sundays, these days in the liturgical calendar are marked by readings from Jesus’ public ministry and include some of his most important parables, healings and teachings. The liturgical color prescribed for Ordinary Time is green symbolizing life and hope.
Celebrate Ordinary Time as a family with all of the ideas and activities in this month’s TCK. And don’t forget to give thanks for the freedom to celebrate our Catholic faith this month on Independence Day!
