Meet Fr. Leopold, the “world’s smallest priest,” celebrating the Lego Mass

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 09/03/15

Don’t you know someone who’d like this for Christmas?:

 Fr. Leopold is on a mission to share the good news of Jesus Christ with minifigures everywhere. 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. The included 28-page full-color instruction guide makes building the altar, ambo, credence table, presider’s chair 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. BoxBack_large 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.
