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
Honesty moment here: my 6-year-old wants to get through Mass ASAP. After asking for the 5,000 time “Is it almost over yet?”, I decided to get him these cards to help him not ask me that question so many times. Now I get a new question: “Do I flip it now? Now?” And I’m also afraid he’s using them to gauge how quickly he’s going to get out of there, not for any learning purposes. I figure I’m going to have to sit down with him on a day that’s NOT Sunday and go through the cards with him so he’ll understand what each card means. AND I realize that he’ll get the hang of it with more use; this is my 8th child. I’ve ridden this rodeo before. ;). There’s just no tinkly bells and “turn the card” for each one (like in the old read aloud cassettes - remember those??).
I know ideally my 5-10 year olds would not NEED to hold anything in their hands during Mass…but some do. We find it a great help to hand them the “Mass Ring”- it transitions them away from holding a toddler toy or book to participating in the Mass. The cards are also excellent catechesis, and are holding up quite well after weekly use for a couple of years, stored in a baggie in our diaper bag. We have a set for our family, and I re-purchased several for Godchild gifts. Also kind of a fun “put-the-cards-in-the-right-order” game when someone opens the ring and drops all the cards!
Loved using these with my 5 year old today for Easter Sunday. It really helped keep him engaged and know what was happening throughout Mass. Thanks for this wonderful product!
So pleased with these. They are beautiful + informative. Excited for my kids to open them in their Easter baskets!
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!
