Hey Frankie, what’s the deal with the other people (without little kids) insisting on sitting at the end of the pew so that it’s really hard for parents to leave the pew with a screaming kid?
I’ve heard my Mom talk about these Reverence & Awe Collector Cards
You can find them at the
Arma Dei Shoppe
My Mom also has a paper craft kit called Color MeCatholic. You should check it out! I haven’t exactly done this craft yet, because they are reluctant to give me scissors, markers or crayons, but I think I could try it at home and bring the little booklets to Mass.
8. Extra Visits to the Church. OK, I added this one after we snuck over to the Church to take these pictures this morning! Don’t tell Mom I told you! It was a nice chance to look around, pray a little and let Mom give me a little tour. I can’t promise exemplary behavior at Mass this Sunday, but every little bit of practice helps!
Well, those are our Mass Survival Tips. I can’t wait to hear about yours!
St Padre Pio, over at Totus Tuus Family & Catholic Homeschooling (some of the pictures on this post come from this awesome website as well!)
