DIY Wooden Catholic Mass Kit Pieces // Catechesis of the Good Shepherd


DIY Wooden Catholic Mass Kit - includes pieces to make a 4 1/2" chalice and ciborium with lid (these will need glued in 3 spots), a standing cross and a pall (that will both need sanded), a paten, several 1 1/2" inch wood "hosts", wooden candles with candle holders, two "cruets" (finials), a small finger bowl, and a small brass bell. All of the wood parts are made of unfinished birch wood except for the cross (which is pine). The pictures show the Mass kit with a 4 year-old boy.

***This kit is easy to put together - it just requires gluing 3 pieces and sanding.***Tools required are just sandpaper and some wood glue. Once it is complete, it's the exact same as the finished wooden Mass Kit that I sell.

I started selling this DIY version of my Mass Kit ( because my oldest is a hands on kind of guy. He loves figuring things out and and he loves work projects. I'm always looking for hands on ways to draw him into the faith so I hope for this to be the first of many DIY projects where kids have the opportunity to build catechetical toys and educational tools themselves. I want kids to be able to take ownership and enjoy working to help provide something really important for their family. As an added bonus, you get a discounted product.
Kids (and all of us) learn by doing and touching. They connect with what they can hold and use and "work" with. I have 3 rough and tumble boys that are 3, 5 and 10 years old and this set can be used by all of them. As I looked online for hands-on ways to learn about the Mass, the options weren't what I was hoping for. The paper crafts would get destroyed in no time, the plush set was too baby for my boys (not to mention more expensive), and we actually have a real Mass kit that my husband bought for over $150 which is awesome (but keeps us from letting the boys use the set without watching them like a hawk. Yikes!). I scoured the internet and found the best pieces to pull together to make a mass kit that is a good scale for toddlers AND kids, durable, and beautiful. My husband is the Director of the Office of Divine Worship for our diocese and he helped make sure everything was just right. If you were to buy each piece individually and assemble them yourself, you'd likely end up paying more than I am offering here because I bought in bulk and saved in shipping. The piece I hope to improve upon is the pall. It actually is sturdy, but feels more flimsy in the hands than I'd like. So if you're a carpenter who will custom make that out of birch for me (for cheap), send me a message. :)

Great! Thank you

This Mass kit was so perfect for my son's 3rd birthday. The instructions were helpful and it was easy to put together and then paint.

Beautiful and worth the money. I decided to spray paint our set gold and paint the hosts and candles. We also bought a cutlery organizer from Hobby Lobby to keep the pieces from jumbling together.

I am so so happy with this set! My girls love to play and it helps teach the parts of the mass so well! Thank you!
