Bringing a very young child to Mass each week initiates him or her into the rhythm and spirit of the liturgy. By introducing young children to the words, gestures, and prayers of the Mass, you can help to cultivate a lifelong love of the Catholic faith. With A Child’s Book of the Mass, parents, grandparents, godparents, teachers, and catechists can guide young children through each moment of the liturgy, helping them to identify the various elements of our liturgical celebration. Accompanied by vibrant, life-like illustrations, this beautiful book will teach children about the celebration at the heart of our faith, encouraging them to watch, listen, and sing along as active members of their faith community.

Betsy Puntel received her BA in Religion and Religious Education from Catholic University of America. A wife, mother, and grandmother, she is a certified Level I, II, and III (3–12 year olds) catechist of the Good Shepherd and a formation leader in the Philadelphia area. She has worked with the Missionaries of Charity in the US, as well as in Russia and the Caribbean.

Hannah Roberts holds an MA in Theology and Philosophy from Oxford University, UK. After college, she worked with poor churches in London's rough East end, helping them restore and redevelop their buildings and grounds to better serve their neighborhoods. She is now a housewife and mother of three young children.

"One of the best liturgical-catechetical Mass books for young children. The writers have done an exceptional job of presenting the rituals of the Mass in a way that will engage children and enable them to reflect at their own level on the meaning of the parts of the Mass. Also throughout the text, children are presented with questions that will draw them into participation and personal participation in a Eucharistic spirituality."

—Maureen A. Kelly


This little book is a treasure for young children and their parents. The celebration of Mass unfolds in a simple and engaging way, to deepen faith and shape understanding, to provide for greater participation and to behold God’s love for us in Jesus. Betsy Puntel and Hannah Roberts, with A Child’s Book of the Mass, place in the hands of parents an excellent guide to give their children a lasting love for the Sunday Eucharist."

—Reverend Gerald Dennis Gill
Director, Office for Divine Worship, Archdiocese of Philadelphia


"A Child's Book of the Mass is the sort of at home catechesis that helps parents assume the responsibility they accepted at their children's Baptism. It is clearly written and well-illustrated. The questions given for the children are well designed to invite and encourage their participation and also give them a sense of accomplished learning. The language is not childish and communicates a sense of the seriousness of the topic. It's the sort of book that one could imagine becoming part of a child's Saturday night bedtime."
