The New Edition of The Roman Missal has been the subject of much discussion over the past few months. As with anything new there is some resistance to the changes that it will bring, but, this change in the Mass texts also offers us the possibility of seeing with new eyes the prayers we use at Mass, and of taking the opportunity to explore again what it is we do when we gather to celebrate the Eucharist. It is in this spirit that ‘Come, Gather and Celebrate, Praying the New Missal with Children’ is being offered. It is hoped that this book will help teachers understand more fully the rationale for the changes that have been made to the Mass texts, introduce them to the new texts and suggest ways that they can communicate and teach the changes to children so that they will be enabled and encouraged to become full, active and conscious participants at Mass. The introduction of the New Missal offers us all the invitation to understand more fully the celebration of the Mass which is the ‘source and summit’ of the life of the church.
The resources are written by Maeve Mahon, Diocesan Advisor for Religious Education in Primary Schools and Elaine Mahon who is currently lecturing in St. Patrick’s College of Education, Drumcondra. We have endeavoured, with Veritas, to keep the costs of the student material as low as possible and so the Workbooks are priced at €3:50 and €3:99.
