Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help teach children that God calls each of us to serve Him in a special way; this is called a vocation. It is based on Christ's Parable of the Wedding Feast in the Gospel of St. Matthew 22:1-14. The Lord says in Matthew 22:14, "For many are called, but few are chosen."
God the Father creates wonderful plans, and He has one for each of His children. The Lord draws each of us to Himself through our vocational calling, the way to best serve Him based on our talents and gifts. All vocations are special, important to the life of the Church, and valued by our heavenly Father.
