Sandra is having problems understanding the various symbols and rituals in the Celebration of the Eucharist and what they mean. To make matters worse, Mr. Ferndock volunteers to fill in for the regular teacher and confuses the issue even more. Luckily, our "Close Encounters" angel comes to the rescue from the control room of "The Mass Channel." She takes Sandra and Mr. Ferndock on a video journey showing how gathering the faith community for the weekly celebration of the Eucharist is very much like gathering the family for the celebration of Thanksgiving. Real-life situations are combined with fantasy and humor to show young people that the mass truly is relevant and meaningful to them. Along with the rituals, important items like the Altar, Tabernacle, and Ambo are also explained so youngsters will see the celebration in a whole new way. Leader's guide included.
