Catholic Games to Help Homeschoolers and Catechists Teach About the Holy Mass
Use our interactive hands-on games to help children learn about the Holy Mass. Aside from encouraging attendance of mass with a glad heart, playing games can be a fun and effective way of getting learners familiar with the different parts of the Mass. By using the proper titles of the parts of the Mass and pairing or reviewing the responses and prayers that accompany each part, learners become more confident in how to participate in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
These games were originally designed for CCD Religious Education use, but they are very adaptable for home and family use as well.
