The Gift of Sunday


The Gift of Sunday

Two of the main priorities discerned at the 2014 Archdiocesan Synod were Evangelization and the Sunday Mass.  Archbishop Listecki has announced a Sunday Mass Initiative, a three-year plan to reenergize our local Church and reconnect to top priorities from the 2014 Archdiocesan Synod. This plan's aim will be around Sunday Mass, the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, and reclaiming Sunday as the Lord's Day. The foundation of this initiative is the Archbishop's theological reflection, The Gift of Sunday, which was published on January 25, 2021. The reflection is available online, along with a study guide for further discussion and reflection. This Easter, the Archbishop will extend a synopsis of the theological reflection to parishioners across the Archdiocese, highlighting ten main aspects of Sunday. 

With two of the main priorities discerned at the 2014 Archdiocesan Synod being Evangelization and the Sunday Mass, "The Gift of Sunday", theological reflection along with the study guide, connect directly to these priorities.

The Gift of Sunday is a theological reflection published with the ecclesiastical approval of Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki, for use in catechesis and prayerful reflection with the People of God in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

The theological reflection is accompanied by a study guide that can be used for personal study or for a small group discussion.  It includes outlines for five sessions.
