Resources for Teaching About the Changes to the Mass

Kid’s Pew Cards

There are many versions of pew cards for the new Roman Missal. These one-page, two-sided pewcards designed for children include icons that help children and teens follow along and participate in the Mass. All of the people’s parts are included alongside the parts of the bishop, priest, or deacon. This is an excellent tool to be used during school masses, religious education liturgies, or during Sunday liturgies.


Flashcards are always great tools for studying new concepts. These pre-made flashcards prompt students to fill in missing parts of prayers or complete prayers that they say during the Mass. These are great tools for bell work or in between assignments.

Lesson Plans

The lesson plans in this activity set come with worksheets and graphic organizers to help you teach children the meaning of key prayers of the Mass including “and with your spirit,” “consubstantial with the Father,” “Lamb of God,” and “I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof.”


For additional practice there are worksheets for each new prayer translation in the new Roman Missal. These are also good resources for bell work, warm-up activities, or quick assessments.

Teacher PowerPoint

Many teachers use PowerPoints to introduce lessons or provide overviews of concepts. This PowerPoint offers an overview of the changes to the Mass and brief introductions to the meaning of many of those changes. Teachers can use this presentation as it is or adapt it for their own use.

Interactive eCourse

With so many new ways of using technology to teach young people, interactivity is becoming an essential aspect of learning. This e-learning module — based in PowerPoint — tests students’ knowledge of the changes to the Mass. Students can select parts of the Mass and select the correct way to say each prayer. This eCourse can be done by students individually or as a class activity using a projector.

This activity pack is more than just a simple book or even an eBook. This collection of resources will stock teacher with a myriad of tools to teach about the changes to the Mass and inviting young people into an encounter with Jesus Christ in the liturgy.

A special thank you to everyone who participated in surveys about these resources and offered feedback along the way. Your participation was invaluable to this process.

  1. What is the difference (besides price) between the “Individual” and the “Parishes or Schools” pack??

    I am an 8th grade religion teacher and a Confirmation catechist, i.e., I do not get paid a lot. :o)

    • I hear ya! That is why I created the difference in price. If you are purchasing the pack for yourself, then it is only $9.95. If you would like your parish or school to pay for it, then convince them to purchase it for you and your colleagues to share at $29.95. Either way, the resources are exactly the same.

    Hie Jared. This is impressive work you are doing I must say.
    I am a religion teacher specialising in mostly Confirmation and Communion. I would like to purchase the book but I’m from Zimbabwe Southern Africa, will the book be delivered to me? many times i have bought books off the internet but they are not delivered to me.


    • The resources are all digital downloads so if you order, you will receive an email with a link to download them to your computer so you can print them out. Thanks for asking!
