Begin your lesson with prayer –
  • Begin prayer with the Sign of the Cross

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name.  They kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

  • End prayer with the Sign of the Cross



  1. There are two main parts of the Mass – The Liturgy of the Word  and the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Print out The Mass Activity sheet, read the Scripture passages then answer the questions. Share and discuss as a family. (Check your answers using The Mass Activity sheet Answers.)
  2. Let’s go back in time and listen to how Jesus taught us  ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ (or ‘Our Father’).
  3. When praying the Lord’s Prayer, do the words have any meaning to you? Read and reflect on Pray It! A Lord’s Prayer Reflection CYB-O pg. 1315 OR Searching for God; Mean What You Pray CYB-T pg. 1245.



  • At Mass, use the missal to help follow along with the parts of Mass (front part of the blue hymnal in our church) found in the pews. When attending Mass this week, focus on what you’ve learned today.
  • Get active in your parish by becoming a lector, Eucharistic Minister, usher or a member in the music ministry.



End your lesson with prayer –
