My Picture Missal App
By Loyola Press
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Children with special needs have spiritual lives and, with communication assistance, can learn the faith and deepen their relationship with God. My Picture Missal is a simple, interactive app that leads the child through the Order of Mass, including the words to the following prayers: Sign of the Cross, Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed, and the Lord’s Prayer.
With a choice of English or Spanish, each part of the Mass is displayed as a colorful icon and a word or short phrase. Additional icons can be activated at any time for stand, sit, kneel, quiet, pray, and take a break to remind children of what they should be doing, or children can show what they know, or communicate with parents without speaking. Children can use this app as a way to “walk through the Mass” in church and use it at home for reinforcement, as well as a way to learn and pray the prayers with their family.
Better than any other Mass app
Follows the same format and images in the Sacraments kit also published by Layola.
However, app does not have all the steps in the new Catholic Mass. This caused problems with children who follow a schedule literally. App needs just a little more expansion.
God bless you for making it available.
Already using with autistic children preparing for first communion.
This is the only Catholic app that is good for small children, but there's no audio...not good for kids who can't read yet, aka, those who could use this app the most! Also needs more interaction... Games that explain the Mass would be great.
