Sr Francesca’s first three books, Masses with Children, More Masses with Children, and Fifty Masses with Children have become classics in their field and have provided teachers and priests throughout the world with topical and engaging Masses for use with primary school children. Fifty Masses with Children is an invaluable resource for all teachers and priests working with children who are now adapting their celebrations of the Masses to the new liturgy.
Inside educators and priests will find ten new Masses along with the most popular Masses from the previous books, revised and updated to conform with the new liturgy. Arranged thematically, they touch on many of the areas with which primary school children are familiar in their religious education programmes. There is also a selection of Masses covering the major dates and occasions during the school year, the liturgical year and the social year of the children and their families.
