Making the Catholic faith fun and accessible to children. That was my goal when I was designing Catholic Color by Mass Item Coloring Pages. I wanted students to be able to learn about and identify the different items used in Mass to help engage them in our faith and in their time spent in Mass.

Coloring is a fun way to make this learning come alive. I've created 5 different versions of these coloring pages so that you can differentiate for your students based on their ability levels. These sheets could be used as an introduction to the vocabulary words important to the Catholic Mass. They could also be used as a review if you've already taught these items.

Even as head altar server of our church growing up, I sure didn't know words like ciborium, credence table, thurible, or purificator. It just wasn't common language and I don't remember ever being taught these items so that I could identify them when I saw them at Mass. That doesn't have to be the case anymore for your students. Teach them the Catholic Mass items in a fun and engaging way!
Make teaching the Catholic faith fun and engaging for kids with these Catholic Color by Mass Item Coloring Pages! Learn the different items we use during Mass with these five different versions of coloring pages. Easy to differentiate to meet your students needs.

There are 5 different sets of these color by mass item pages, but they can be broken down into two categories. The first set has 3 levels and the Mass item pictures that are used are what I would call random - meaning that they don't specifically relate to the overall picture that students are coloring. The point is just to expose students to a variety of different items from the Mass and have them become familiar with that they look like and what they are called.

The first version is designed for non-readers. They really just need to know the color names and I solve that problem for my little one by coloring in the key at the top for her and then she just needs to match. No reading required.

In this version there is a picture of a sacred Mass item at the top and those same pictures are in the color by code picture below. So all they need to do is match picture to picture in order to color it in.

Level 2 is familiarizing students with the names of the different items, but not what they look like. This is another one my daughter can do without reading and simply by matching the words, so it is possible to use this with non-readers as well.

Students will be introduced to a variety of Catholic vocabulary words. You can show them pictures of these items as they do it, but this level is just familiarizing them with the words.

Related Word Sets

The second category of color by Mass item pages have related words that help describe or define the picture that is being colored. This includes two different levels - one with a little more support in identifying the item and the other where students have to come up with the item name on their own.

This version has some built in support to teach students more about the picture they are coloring. At the top left is the name of the item followed by a short definition for that word. This is designed to be a teaching tool or support to students who need that reminder.

All the words that students will be looking for and coloring in the picture are related to that one main picture. So for example on the picture of the monstrance, students will color the words vessel, adoration, Jesus, Holy Eucharist, monstrance and host.

In the level 2 version, students will have the same words that are related to the picture as they had in the first level, so for monstrance the words will be vessel, adoration, Jesus, Holy Eucharist, monstrance and host.

The difference is there is no word and definition at the top of the page. Instead there is a line and a question at the bottom of the page asking students to identify the item they just colored. The answer will always be one of the words of the six or so that they used to color the pictures, but they will have to figure out which one.

  1. Thank you so much for the information shared. As a non Catholic teacher teaching in a Catholic School, getting items especially religious colouring materials is really hard.Your freebies has really helped in relaying the messages across since our school also can't afford to pay for your mass items and all the other materials shared. Madam please enlighten me on any assistance that you can render in terms of religious colouring materials that my students could be using.
