My Sunday Mass Book
the Gift of the Eucharist
By Kara O'Malley
Children who have just received the sacrament of the Eucharist
for the first time have reached a very special threshold in their Christian
Life. My Sunday Mass Book is
designed to encourage children and their families to continue participating
each Sunday at Mass with the same engagement as when they first received the
Eucharist – for at the heart of the Mass, we receive the Body and Blood of
Christ, the nourishment we need to go out into the world and do God’s work.
My Sunday Mass Book was developed to
Engage: Lively section
illustrations draw emotional connections to the child’s lived experience.
Explore: Spaces for
interactivity, where the child can write, draw, and express their thoughts,
will encourage children to explore their feelings and feel ownership of the
Act: Each section closes
with simple activities for home and at Mass.
