The Basic Mass Set
The Basic Mass Set
Getting kids to pay attention in Mass is hard. Between sitting, standing, and trying to keep toes clear of someone who decided to THUMP the kneeler down, it is a challenge to get kids to focus on Jesus.
Even more than paying attention in Mass, we want our kids to learn about and love the Mass - after all, it is central to our faith as Catholics.
How can you help your kids actually enjoy Mass? By uniting prayer and play, with your own wooden Mass set!
By adding a Mass set to your home, kids have the ability to ‘play’ Mass, to mimic the reverence and beauty of the liturgy in their own playtime.
Imagine that all of your kids are quiet. Curious, you walk through the house to find that they’ve cleared a space, set an ‘altar’ and are playing Mass. You watch as they lift up the host, then the chalice, all the while praying. Next, they take turns coming up to receive ‘communion’.
Suddenly you realize that they are paying attention at Mass, so much so that they want to re-live those experiences during their play time. At last, they have a quality set to play and pray with!
For years I watched my kids turn plastic cups and cheerios into chalices and hosts. I searched high and low before creating their very own wooden Mass set. When I saw their faces light up and begin processing around our apartment playing adoration, I knew I wanted to share these sets with families like yours. I can’t wait to bless your family with a set for prayer and play.
The Painted Basic Mass Set includes ALL of the following items:
- 4 wooden 'hosts' with cross design
- Two Altar Candles
- Candle snuffer
- Hemmed and embroidered corporal (white cloth on the altar at Mass)
- Crucifix measuring 3.5’’ from Rough 2 Rustic

Additionally, the Painted Basic Mass Set also includes an info sheet on each of the items with a bit of history and teaching. This set makes a great gift for little ones learning about the Mass! Each piece is painted by hand using only certified non-toxic paints and sealant.

Who are Mass Sets for?
Mass sets are perfect for children of all ages, though adult supervision is highly recommended for children under 3 as there are small pieces in the set.
Mass sets are also great for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, parish religious education, and more.
Wooden Mass parts are durable, and they also provide an opportunity for children to learn and pray wherever they are. These handcrafted and hand painted items allow children to connect with the liturgy in a new way.
Additionally, in times where families cannot attend the celebration of the Mass, Mass sets allow children to remain close to the Blessed Sacrament in a prayerful, playful way. In addition, we also offer the Natural Wood Deluxe and Natural Wood Ultimate Mass Sets!
