Mass Resources

To the parents of young children:

  • God put the wiggle in children. Don’t feel like you have to suppress it in God’s house.
  • Sit toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to see and hear what’s going on at the altar. They tire of seeing the backs of others’ heads.
  • Quietly explain the parts of the Mass and actions of the priest, altar servers, choir etc.
  • Sing, pray, and voice the responses. Children learn by copying your involvement.
  • If you have to leave Mass with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back. As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
  • Remember that the way we welcome children in church directly affects the way they respond to the Church, to God, and to one another. Let them know that they are at home in this house of worship.
  • Please let your child use the reverse side of this card to draw and doodle.

To other members of our parish:

  • The presence of children is a gift to the church, and they are a reminder that our parish is growing! Please welcome our children and give a smile of encouragement to their parents.
