TEACH YOUR KIDS THE BEAUTY OF THE MASS!
My Journey with Jesus Mass Ring
This pocket-sized guide is perfect for teaching your pint-sized saints about the Order of the Mass. The Mass Parts Cards come on a ring and outline the four parts of the mass, explaining what happens in each. Color-coordinated cards complete with illustrations and explanations allow children to familiarize themselves with the order and importance of each piece of the mass. Armed with this knowledge, our saints in training are empowered to participate more fully and confidently in the Holy Mass. All 29 cards are held on a 2″ metal ring for safe-keeping!
These cards are 2.5” x 4” and printed on 130# cover stock with a Glossy UV coating to make them more durable for little hands.
HERE'S WHAT OTHER PARENTS HAVE TO SAY!
“We love the Mass cards! We love anything to help make mass more engaging for our littles! The more engaged they are means less undesirable behaviors during mass. A win-win for everyone!! Thank you!” -Larissa
“My 6-year-old loves the Mass cards. I was thrilled to receive them. The order of the mass is so comforting and the added visual cues are a wonderful reinforcement for the learning of our children. I also find my 13-year old looking at them during mass. Initially, I thought...”What a great way to encourage engagement and instill familiarity with the mass in our children.” Also, during these pandemic times, we have no missals available to follow along. These are far more appropriate for the younger ones anyway. Thank you for this wonderful tool.” - Francesca
“My kids loved the mass parts cards, especially the youngest. She has found mass "boring" so having the cards is a great way for her to stay engaged and have a bit more sense of what is going on.” - Jana
“I just wanted to say how excited I was to see the Mass Parts Cards this month!! I have a (just turned) 8-year old who is still quite fidgety and not really “participating” in Mass… and these were JUST what I needed!! We have looked at them and talked about them and will be studying them as the month goes on. Such a good reminder for the older kiddos too! So THANK YOU and we are so appreciative of all your hard work! :)” - Nicole
I got these to try with my 3-year-old, and they are so helpful for him. Now I don't get asked a hundred times, "Is it almost over?" because he can easily see the exact number of steps until Mass is finished, and he is more engaged through each step of the Mass. But my favorite part is how he know likes to play with these outside of Mass. He'll act out the parts. One happy mama!
Additionally, I recommended these to a parent who is just starting his journey through RCIA to help him and his children learn the Mass. So cool!
We used these yesterday at mass for the first time for my 7 and 5 year old. They were sooo into it! They had their best behavior yesterday because of it too. They felt super proud whenever they knew to turn the card over and it really encouraged them to follow along. My 5 year old can’t read but having the images helped him along. My oldest even said it was a faster mass yesterday, but I think that’s because she didn’t even realize how much more she took part in it. I am hoping to buy more for gifts for all their school friends and our church friends. This really is an that had a lot of thought put into it. Wish I found it sooner!
My 6-year-old has ASD and struggles with waiting because it is an ambiguous concept. We make waiting a tangible and visual concept for him. And your cards are helping him stay present during Sunday mass. Because I can say to him, “Mass will be over when we go through all of the cards.” I really appreciate the color code for the parts of the mass, the explanations and the pictures. They have been a great way for my son to be calm and present during Mass. Thank you so much!
The mass cards have become a staple part of our experience of mass. Our kids (5 and 3 years old) now are very interested in knowing what part of the mass we are in based on the cards, and are attempting to participate more in mass responses as prompted by the cards (Holy, Holy, Holy, etc). It has been absolutely incredible for our family! I would recommend this to every Catholic family!
