15th January 2021 Friday

Good morning! It's Friday! We hope you have had a great week. 

RE- Special people- People who help out at mass

Zoom session 9:30

In this session we will talk about the people who welcome and help at Mass on Sunday.  Some people have special roles at Sunday Mass: e.g. greeters, the priest, deacon, altar servers, readers, those who take the collection, bring up the bread and wine to the altar and the extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. 

Some people help prepare the church for Mass on Sunday e.g. flower arrangers and those who clean the church.

Remember that although there are people with special roles at Mass everyone who is there is important and joins in by praying, listening, singing by saying the responses and by going forward for a blessing.

Look at the photo below and talk about the key questions:

Key questions

  1. What do you see?
  2. Where are people going?
  3. Who is there?

  5. What other jobs do people do during Mass?

Look at the church helpers below and discuss what they do to help.


For the task today you can choose from two different activities.

1. Using the outline of the church, draw somebody who helps in the church. Write a sentence to say what that person does.

2. Cut and stick the label to the correct picture. Print out the matching activity. Cut out the pictures of the church helpers and match the label that goes with the picture.
