Favorite images from the Mass fill the pages of this beautiful book, helping children learn, label, and love what they see in their own church.  With the book’s upbeat cadence, whimsical rhyme, and adorable illustrations, children will delight right along with the little boy at all there is to see at Mass.

I Went to Mass is sure to become a classic for Catholic children everywhere!

I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a Catholic children’s book fan. And when I come across a favorite, I really have to tell you all about it so you can make it a part of your Mass bag. If you’re familiar with Brown Brown Bear, What Do You See? you will notice a familiar rhythm as you read through this book. My kids love reading this before Mass starts and I love that it is now a welcome tool in helping prepare them for Mass.

By Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to eight kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-12/19. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.
