Catholic Mass prayers and responses - booklet size layout

It is set out as four half-pages, two on each sheet of paper.

The welcome, penitential rite, Gloria readings are on the first page, the creeds, Eucharistic prayer and Our Father on the inside, and the Sign of peace, Communion prayers (including an Act of Spiritual Communion) and dismissal are on the back page.

Using this Catholic Mass booklet

These pages are designed to be printed on one double-sized page, and folded in half to use as a booklet.

The booklet should be printed duplex landscape onto one A4 / US Letter size page (flipping on the short edge) - or if your printer does not do this, you may need to print page one, and then feed in the same page to print page two on the back.  Doing this allows the printout to be folded in half to make a one-sheet booklet, which is easy to hold and manage at home.

It was inspired by very-popular full-size printable Mass responses card - but is in a half-size to make it easier to handle.   It also includes the most common Act of Spiritual Communion, which is regularly prayed by people watching and on-line Mass or listening to one on the radio.

Use the PDF version, if you want a file that prints exactly as it looks on screen .   Or use the  Microsoft Word version if you want to change the contents and / or pictures. 

Items are numbered, to help you follow the flow and make the "front / back" vs "middle pages obvious.

Small pictures are used to reinforce what is happening at around that time during the Mass, and to keep the leaflets more visually engaging.
