Wee Believers My Mass Kit Review

This Giveaway is Temporarily CLOSED. Look for upcoming details.

I love my Catholic faith. And, as a mom of three boys, my heart's desire is to instill in my boys a love for Jesus and a love for the Catholic Church. I am continually searching for fun ways to engage the boys so that they can pick up the Faith. That was why I was so excited to learn of the Wee Believers My Mass Kit. I was very fortunate to get the opportunity to review the My Mass Kit.

Wee Believers was started by Steve and Joni Abdalla who wanted to develop a line of quality toys that teach the Faith in a fun and creative way. The My Mass Kit is the first of several products that Wee Believers is launching. This is a great company and I highly recommend you watch this interview on This is the Day at Catholic TV to learn more about their mission and up coming products.

The My Mass Kit comes in a nylon carrying case that allows for easy storage and travel. The Kits consists of 12 pieces: a Chalice, Paten, Crucifix, 2 Candles, Hosts, 2 Cruets, Corporal, Purificator, Finger Bowl, and Thurible. Each piece is made of a vibrant colored cloth that is easy to clean. I will be honest, I was not sure if I would like the Kit at first. The proof of the product, for me, came in whether my boys liked it.



My boys were drawn to it right away and immediately wanted to play Mass. The pieces were easy for them to use and handle. I liked the fact that the Kit contains all of the essential pieces for Mass so that my sons could set up their "altar" just as they would see it set up in Church. One of my favorite things about the kit is that it comes with an ecclesiastically approved instructional booklet that explains each piece and how it is used in Mass. It gives the proper name for each item, along with its picture so that you can use the kit as an instructional tool. This kit is perfect for young boys (ages 2-6, in my opinion). A "toy" like this is so unique because it not only teaches children about Mass, but, helps to draw them into the Liturgy more fully.


The My Mass Kit is not inexpensive, at $89.99, it is an investment. An investment in creating new ways for your children to learn more about the Faith and to inspire.



Buy My Mass Kit: You can purchase the My Mass Kit for $89.99 from the Wee Believers Website, or go to the the Wee Believers website to find a Catholic Store in your area that carries it.

  25. Have seen this and love the idea! I really like the quiet church they have on their site - quiet being the operative word. As in, when the acolyte carries the crucifix out at the end of church, we should not say 'BYE BYE JESUS' as loudly as we can . . .

  26. I love the book that names everything. I think it would make mass so much more meaningful for my son to be able to "follow along" with what he's learned at home, but I don't know the names of most of what the priest uses! I also think the Quiet Church would be a great asset. You can email me at kansasmom1998 at gmail dot com.

  27. Wow, love the mass kit very much from the Wee Believers website. It would be perfect for my almost 4 yr old son John, this is the way to get more vocations and I probably will not find this toy at Target or Walmart either, thanks for the info., here is my contest info., skatreesa@hotmail.com, Theresa Sheba Webster, NY

Fasting and the Current State of Our Church

I love researching diets.  If it is new and popular, I probably have read about it some and maybe have even tried it.  Lately, fasting has gained popularity.  You can find books that will provide research on just how good fasting is for the body.  And, I have been intrigued, mainly because I am horrible at fasting and the thought of restricting myself from eating food completely sounds too extreme. 



As Catholics we are called to days of fasting and abstinence, and for as strong as I like to think I am, I am quite a wimpy "faster."  But, after reading a great deal about fasting and its physical benefits, I started to feel like God was asking me to get more serious about fasting, not for the physical benefits but for the spiritual ones.  My husband and I were out for a walk the other night and I was talking about my new found respect for fasting and how I feel called to do it more, for spiritual reasons, and I started to speak about how amazing it is that fasting has so many …

Settling In

I find it ironic that the last post I posted was about our move that did not happen and how God wanted me to be moldable.  When I typed those words and prayed those words, "God make me moldable," "Move to Wisconsin" was NOT what I was envisioning.  But, sometimes God's will is surprising and unexpected.

So, here we are.  18 days as Wisconsinites.  So many people have called and texted, asking me how we are doing and I often find my words fall short.  I am better at reflecting and writing out my thoughts, so this is for all those who have asked and are wondering . . .


We are doing well.  The move has felt very natural in so many ways.  It feels comfortable here. I haven't felt out of place or a "fish out of water" here at all. The kids all like it here.  Some miss their friends tremendously, which is expected.  One of my "littles" has shown some regression, also expected, but everyone is adjusting so well to the new house and neighborhood. …

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48


There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  


About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …
