Because the Eucharist is the “source and summit”of our faith, what could be more important than helping children grow in their understanding of the Mass?
In this excellent, practical resource, Patricia Mathson offers easy, meaningful, and enjoyable activities that not only explore and examine each part of the celebration but also connect it with daily life. In this way, Mass becomes the springboard to a life of discipleship, even for the very youngest child. In addition to material for the classroom, there is a family take-home page for each activity, with special recommendations for families with children preparing for First Eucharist.
Ideal for faith formation programs, Catholic schools, family catechesis, and more, this book will quickly become indispensable for busy catechists seeking to make our Eucharistic worship come alive for children and families alike.
