Mass Books For Kids

Mass book for Catholic kids: A Picture Book Of The Mass Illustrated By The Masters is a great resource for kids and adults alike. It goes through the Mass, highlighting everything that is said out loud by the congregation, in red. All the different pieces of the Mass are paired with beautiful old artwork. It comes complete with symbols that let you know when to sit, stand, or kneel. You can read more about the Mass Book here.

Mass Printables For Kids

This is a set of scripture memory that’s all directly from the Catholic Mass. As you read these Scripture passages, you’ll find that you already know most of them by heart, all you have to do is learn where they are in the Bible. 🙂

  1. Love your Mass kit! I agree about the cost of the ones out there for purchase, quite ridiculous. What I did several years ago was purchase items from a second hand store. Our chalice was a brass wine glass, we found small glass salad dressing cruets, the paten was a fancy brass candle plate. Candle sticks were easy as thrift shops have them in abundance! I love your ideas for the incense and bells! I guess with painting everything you really can’t use the items to have Mass. You are so incredibly creative! Thank you so much for you time and dedication.

    • I also love thrift store shopping! I added several items from thrifting (including that we now have a brass “chalice” that’s a little nicer than the plastic one).

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your picture book of the Mass Illustrated by the masters! I have ordered I think 6 in all and have given them to my children and keep one for myself and we take them to Mass every week. They are wonderful for children as well as adults and the paintings are lovely! My children look at the paintings in the book and then have comments/questions they ask later. This book is small enough that they can easily hold it and they keep up with exactly where we are in the service as well as when to kneel, stand, or sit! I think it makes the Mass go quicker for them since they can see where they are at all times! This is a super gift and I recommend having several onhand as gifts or for any guests (Catholic or non-Catholic) you may take to church! I would purchase them if they were ever hard-bound (hint, hint!) they are that incredible!

    • Lol! We are looking at possibly expanding the Mass book a little and possibly offering other binding options. I agree- we keep them around all the time. The kids use them always, and we often give them to visitors at our church and RCIA candidates. So happy to hear that you’re liking yours! 🙂

    Your crafts are great, but would you have anything for children that are cognitively disabled. I have a religious education program where my students are autistic,
    Downs Syndrome and mentally retarded. Karen
