Instilling a love and reverence for the faith should begin at an early age. These cards will help do just that!
Watch your little one’s excitement at Mass when they recognize the vessels, objects and vestments used in the liturgy. Introducing these words will help prepare them to receive the Sacraments and inaugurate a lifelong journey of learning about the wonders of their Catholic faith.
Like the popular game Concentration, the object of Catholic Words Memory Match is to turn over matching pairs of cards. Each deck has 52 2.5” x 3.5” (64mm x 89mm) cards—that’s 26 pairs of bright and colorful illustrations created just for this game. The images and text make it fun to practice reading and word recognition.

BUILT TO LAST:
Our cards are printed on 350GSM paper. What’s that? GSM stands for “Grams per Square Meter” and indicates the paper’s thickness—the higher the GSM, the heavier the paper. Playing cards used in casinos, for example, are made from 310 GSM paper. Ours is thicker. In addition, our cards are finished off with a protective UV (Ultra Violet) coating that will stand up to spills and preserve the cards for years to come.

I bought these for a junior high religion class, for them to get acquainted with the vocabulary. Excellent service, and the product is just what I was looking for.
Bought both sets of memory cards for my kiddos for Christmas and they love them! Everyone from 3-18 years old played and had fun! Can’t wait to give the extra sets to my friend’ s family. Also, ordering was super easy and they were very pleasant and helpful😊
I will definitely share this website and with our parish school and all my friends! Thank you!

I absolutely love these cards! The kids in my tween youth group rush to be the first ones to get to our meetings so they can start playing memory using the decks. I insist that they read the word/name of the object when they turn the card over so they get the terms in their heads. We talk about what the unfamiliar things are and who uses them during the Mass. They all want their parents to get them sets for home. Great product!
Thanks so much Annette. I am so humbled that something I created is helping pass along the faith to the next generation.

Hi Dan the cards arrived intact and looking good. Thanks very much.
Put to use already with our little children who attend the RCIA classes for kids but need babysitting rather than “teaching”.
Thanks Fr. Laurenson! So happy the cards are in New Zealand!
