Cute and sturdy wood toy candles! Add these candles to go with your Mass kit set.
Two candles per wooden candle set. Mass kit not included.
These are meant to go along with my wooden mass kit which includes two candles - enough to "celebrate" Low Mass, but if you'd like to buy extras these are available to add on!
When would you use more than two?
High Mass with the pope: seven candles
Solemn high Mass (when the priest is assisted by a deacon and subdeacon): six candles
High Mass (celebrated without a deacon and subdeacon): four or six candles
Low Mass celebrated by a bishop: four candles
Low Mass: two candles
DETAILS: The wood candles and sticks are made of unfinished birch wood. These are non-toxic with no chemicals or polyurethane used at all. The pictures show the Mass kit with a 5 year-old.
ABOUT: I created the very first wooden mass kits about 7 years ago and they're still a big hit in my shop. I had the idea to make this set after we fell in love with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program at our parish. Kids connect with what they can hold and use and "work" with. I have 4 rough and tumble boys that are 3, 8, 10 and 14 years old and this set can be used by all of them. We actually have a real Mass kit that my husband bought for over $150 which is awesome, but we aren't able to let the boys use the set without watching them like a hawk. I scoured the woodworking companies and found the best pieces to pull together to make a mass kit that is a good scale for toddlers AND kids, durable, and beautiful. My husband is the Director of the Office of Divine Worship for our diocese and he helped make sure everything was just right.
