Thank you so much for being a Children’s Missalette subscriber!
We’re writing to let you know that we’ve recently decided to stop making new Diving into the Mass videos for the Children’s Missalette. You will of course still be able to watch all of the previous ones and we will still continue to feature one of the Diving into the Mass videos in each of our emails, but there will no longer be any new videos. This was a tough decision, but it was necessary. Here’s why.
Producing videos has been the most difficult part of the Children’s Missalette. We’re a small part-time operation and every minute counts. In order to be able to keep the Children’s Missalette alive, we need to spend our time as efficiently as possible. We recently realized that in order to keep up with everything, we needed to trim back on the amount we were producing, and the Diving into the Mass videos makes the most sense.
The purpose of the Diving into the Mass videos was always to teach children about the Mass. We feel that with the videos we’ve created so far, we’ve made that possible. While a few families watch these videos every week, most do not. In addition to that, our newest videos have gone well beyond the basics of Mass and are not necessary for giving children a good understanding of how to follow along during Mass and why it is important.
We know that some of you will be sad to hear this news. But we ask that you trust us when we say that this change is the best thing for ensuring that the Children’s Missalette is able to continue successfully in the future.
If you have thoughts, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you for all of your prayers, support, and your continued use of the Children’s Missalette!
