Does anyone know of any good pamphlets that can be included in a Catholic Mass program as an explanation? :shrug:
My Dh and I helping a couple at church put together a program for their son’s wedding in January. We’ve been enlisted because 90% of the family and friends attending their son’s wedding are Protestant or non-religious similar to how our wedding was in June. They have the great idea of including a pamphlet that can be a short explanation for non-catholic family and friends about the traditions of the Mass since for most of them it will be their first experience with the Church.
They are already spelling out what type of participation people should do during the Mass in the program (when they should sit or stand, what they should say, readings of the Mass, etc.), but a short pamphlet about why the Church holds such traditions would also be helpful. Maybe something with scripture references to the parts of the Mass (Ex: why as Catholics we believe the Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Christ) that people can either read while waiting for the wedding to start or look up after?
Thanks for the help guys!
