“Kids represent 25% of the Catholic Church in the United States today, and 100% of the Church of tomorrow,” explains Matthew Pinto, Founder and President of Ascension. “Therefore, few things are more important to Catholic parents, pastoral leaders and religious educators than the faithful transmission of our faith to the next generation. To this end, we wanted to create an array of new resources that would unpack and display the richness and beauty of our Catholic faith.”
“Catholic parents, teachers, and mentors have a sacred calling from God to bring up their children in the faith,” adds Luis J. Medina, General Manager of Small Group and Consumer Products at Ascension. “Ascension is proud to come alongside families, parishes, and school communities to support them in this critical mission. The resources we are offering with the new Ascension Kids brand are faithfully Catholic, beautifully designed, and just plain fun!”

The prayers and hands-on activities seek to engage each child at his or her level in all that is happening during the Mass. The book has interactive features to keep little hands busy like flaps to lift, wheels to turn, and tracks to trace. The text itself helps each child follow along with the prayers of the Mass and understand what each prayer means. The book is also available in Spanish.
