A Child's Guide to the Holy Eucharist

Rite II

Sarah Horton

Apr/1999, 80 Pages, Paperback, 8.5 x 8.5

ISBN-13: 9780819218025



A practical, illustrated guide that helps children and their parents prepare and have a deeper understanding of Eucharistic liturgy.

Written for grammar-school age children, this guide to the Rite II Eucharistic service presents the full text of the service from the Book of Common Prayer alongside commentary and cartoons that clarify the meaning of the words. Horton focuses on the "hows" and the "whats" of the service itself, in the belief that participation and information are, in the long term, the keys to Christian formation.

This practical manual will be useful to a wide variety of groups. Church school teachers and pastors can use this in Sunday school classes, or during the service itself to help children participate more fully. Parents and children will also find this a helpful tool as they explore Christian life together.

Sarah Horton is Rector of Saint Barnabas' Church in Norwich, Vermont and the author of A Child's Guide to the Holy Eucharist, Rite II.
