From Mass To Mission: Understanding The Mass And Its Significance For Our Christian Life For Children
Every Sunday, we go to Mass to pray with our family, friends, and members of our parish. Going to Mass is the most important thing we do as Catholic Christians. Mass gives us time to praise God and to thank him for all the blessings in our life, to hear his Word, and to receive the Body and Blood of Christ. Going to Mass helps us to become better people. This booklet explains the meaning of the Mass and will help you understand why going to Mass on Sunday is so important for our faith.
Children will learn:
• Why Mass is important
• What Catholics believe about Christ
• The parts of the Mass
• Why we stand, kneel, sing, and listen
• Prayers, responses, and acclamations
• Vocabulary Words
• How Mass helps us to be more like Jesus
From Mass to Mission may be used with children from grade three to six in the classroom and with parents. This booklet is filled with fun activities, illustrations, photographs, and simple explanations. An accompanying leader’s guide for teachers and catechists is available.
