Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord.
Use this unit study to help teach children that we are called to tell others about Jesus. This lesson is based on Jesus' ascension into Heaven in the Gospel of St. Luke 24:46-53.
In this week’s Gospel, we witness the Ascension of the Lord. Jesus tells the Apostles that Scripture has been fulfilled, and He helps them understand their calling to be witnesses of God’s saving love. We too are called to be witnesses to Christ Jesus and the loving mercy of God. There are many ways to share this good news with the world, and it is our job to joyfully share what we know with as many people as we can.
