Catholic Missals - Children's books and Order of the Mass

Posted by Les Ellison  ·  Be the first to comment

The Mass is the central act of worship that unites every believer in the church. The challenge for parents, teachers and leaders is to include children in the Mass within the children’s endurance and understanding.

Preparing children for what to expect at the Mass is the best first step. If children are aware of the significance of the Mass, they will be more likely to connect with its truth and beauty in the future.

 

Resources for parents, teachers and leaders

Books and activities preparing children for what they’ll see and hear at the Mass, are simply worded and colourfully illustrated. Materials to engage children in prayer, Bible reading and other Catholic traditions make up a comprehensive resource for parents, teachers and leaders.

 

Smply worded, coloufully illustrated
