In the Sacrament of the Eucharist, we receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. When we celebrate the Eucharist, we join in communion with the family of the Church.
Help children deepen their understanding of the Eucharist and the Mass with fun review games. Children will enjoy playing Mass Bingo, Eucharist Tic-Tac-Toe, and a Matching Game to review People and Things at Mass.
These downloadable games can be printed out and played in sacramental preparation sessions or as a review for children who have already come to the table of the Lord. Challenge classmates’ knowledge and grow in faith by appreciating the gift of the Mass, especially the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Fill out the form below to receive the free printable games.
I just received an email from a parent of a 2nd grader asking for her child to receive First Eucharist in a private ceremony / mass for only family. When I replied that we only did masses with the parish family she asked why and then said “it didn’t need to be a full Mass”! How do I respond to that???
Hi Judy, that’s one I haven’t heard before! I would probe a little further to discern why she is asking for this just to make sure there is not some problem you are not aware of. Beyond that, it is crucial to continue catechizing the child and the parents to recognize that the Eucharist makes us a part of the Mystical Body of Christ. It is not an individual event but a communal experience.
Thanks! Our pastor has already said he would not do a private Mass. I do believe it is a matter of the parents needing more catechesis. Unfortunately, the parents did not attend the 1st Eucharist Parent Meeting which is my chance to do some education.
I am a new catechist and really appreciate the help.
