LEGO MASS SET BRICKS (yes… Legos for Mass!)

I’ll bet some of you played with Legos when you were young.  I’ll bet some of you still play with Legos.  I’ll bet some of you played Mass when you were young.  I hope none of you are playing Mass now… unless it’s with Legos.

There is now an easier way to play Mass with Legos..

A company called Domestic Church Supply has Legos – real Legos – for Mass.

Mass legos

Being Legos, you can put the priest on the correct side of the altar.  Their blurb:

Fr. Leopold is on a mission to share the good news of Jesus Christ with minifigures everywhere. [Father needs a blog.] Sporting his brand new clerics and a friendly face, he is ready to preach the gospel and bring the sacraments to his people.

Featuring 171 genuine LEGO® bricks, three modified bricks (his Roman collar, the sacramentary and the lectionary were printed after they left the factory) and a set of four vestments (a green chasuble for Ordinary Time, red and white for feast days, and purple for Advent and Lent) this set will provide hours of imaginative play. [NO BLACK?!?]

The included 28-page full-color instruction guide makes building the altar, ambo, credence table, presider’s chair [aka sedilia] and tabernacle a snap.

Put the lectionary, sacramentary, chalice, paten, hosts, cruets and lavabo dish in place, get Fr. Leopold vested and he’s ready to celebrate Mass. Congregation not included.

This model isn’t sponsored, authorized or endorsed by the Lego Group. The design, kit assembly and instructions are a Domestic Church Supply Company exclusive.

Because of the limited availability of certain Lego bricks in this set, quantities are limited.

Due to the overwhelming interest in this product, current delivery times are approximately 4-6 weeks from when you place your order.

We are working hard to reduce delivery times, but these sets are hand assembled and take a significant amount of time to put together.

Speaking of playing Mass… check out this great video of 4 year old Thuan’s liturgical style. ALERT: Thuan – at 4 – has more Latin in his Mass than most priests of the Latin Church, but I digress. I especially enjoyed the ministration of the altar boy at about 8:00 onward. He really makes sure that the corporal is on that altar! “Father Thuan” is not into liturgical abuse. He sticks to the book! Note how he corrects the “reader” at the prayers of the faithful.

Please share!

    WOW!!!!

    When I was much younger…. Not *that* long ago…. I tried building a Lego church. I used a golden “goblet” from a Harry Potter Lego set as the chalice, a too-large Lego plate/dish as a paten, and I built the altar versus populum (I didn’t know about ad orientem yet). It was a struggle to adapt Harry Potter minifigure Lego capes/cloaks from their Hogwarts uniforms into vestments, but I managed to procure green, violet, and black. I had a stained glass Lego window from a Lego castle set– the one stained glass window for the church. Too bad I ran out of enough Legos for more than 3 pews. So I scrapped the project and went back to building spaceships and cars.

    That was about as close as I got to ever “playing church.”

    The little connector peg on the top of the Lego priest’s head is just begging for a Lego biretta.

    A Lego biretta would be perfect!

    And Lego altar cards, of course!

    Father Thuan is adorable! Thank you for sharing that video, Father. The whole family enjoyed it!

    My boys just made me promise to get them the Lego Mass set for them. With the wait time for delivery, it will make a good Christmas present.

  6. Eugene says:

    thank you for the wonderful video of the “Father Thuan”…..may he have a vocation some day!

  7. DD says:

    This would make a wonderful gift to Catholic school classrooms!

  8. Former Altar Boy says:

    Your post brought memories, Father. When I was in grade school (Catholic – bless my parents) before Vat2 when they still taught such things, we had to build a miniature altar and all the parts. Mine was a shoebox and the priest was a properly vested clothespin doll. I about hacked off a finger using my mother’s butcher knife to chop off a piece of soup bone to scotch-tape to the top of the altar. When one of our priests came to our classroom to view our projects, he asked me what that was on the later top. I told him it was a piece of soup bone to represent a relic. Without missing a beat, he said, “It must have been a holy cow.”

    That took about a millisecond to hit the BUY button for my 9 yr old Father Wannabe/Lego fan! Christmas is coming!

    I’m planning on getting these for my children for Christmas. I didn’t realize the shipping times were so long. Guess I had better order right away.
    My children construct “Mass” out of Lego’s, building blocks, etc… You’ll be happy to hear that the priests are always offering the Mass ad orientem. They also create scenes using Fisher Price Little People. One day I was admiring a particularly detailed creation. Then I realized they had constructed a scene of Christians being put to death in the coliseum. To be fair, they learned about it from reading the lives of the saints.

    Haw! They appear to have said that with a straight face!!

    “Being Legos, you can put the priest on the correct side of the altar.”

    Throws a whole new light on the term “brick by brick”, doesn’t it?

  12. Mary of Carmel says:

    This video is so adorable! Fr. Thuan had it all down!
    (He didn’t give the “chalice” to his dad, though, and everyone was receiving communion in the hand!–Tsk, tsk.) :)

    This video is rated 2C for:”too Cute!”

  13. Mary of Carmel says:

    To Former Altar Boy:
    “…a piece of soup bone to represent a relic. Without missing a beat, he said, “It must have been a holy cow.”

    Nice memory! I congratulate you on your creative use of a bone to represent a relic! Great story!

  14. One of those TNCs says:

    Wow – “Fr. Thuan” even pronounced “grievous” correctly!!!

  15. Rob in Maine says:

    I bought one first thing after seeing the post yesterday. I’m donating it to the church bazaar this November. Hopefully it will be a big raffle item.

    Cute! My 6 year old sometimes plays Divine Liturgy with our icon corner. He always insists on the use of incense. When he is finished, he takes the holy water and blesses everyone in the house. It is very cute. He now sings in the choir with me and pretty much knows the first half of the liturgy (the unchanging parts) by heart. I can see him cantoring when he gets old enough.

    A pedantic rubricist quotes :

    “The word LEGO® is a brand name and is very special to all of us in the LEGO Group Companies. We would sincerely like your help in keeping it special. Please always refer to our bricks as ‘LEGO Bricks or Toys’ and not ‘legos.’ By doing so, you will be helping to protect and preserve a brand of which we are very proud and that stands for quality the world over. “
