Catholics are obligated to attend Holy Mass! Remember the Sabbath Day - Keep it Holy comes to us from the 10 Commandments to given to Moses by God Himself (Ex 20:8-11). We have a moral obligation to honor the Lord’s Day, moved from Saturday in the Old Testament to Sunday by virtue of Jesus’s Resurrection from the dead on this day, which no law can invalidate.
Catholics are, as are all Christians, obliged to set Sunday apart for worship of God and as a day unlike others. The most salutary way we do this is by participating at Sunday Mass.
Therefore, the Sacred Liturgy, and particularly the Holy Eucharist, is the very heart and foundation of our Catholic faith. It is during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that the saving death and resurrection of Jesus are made present to us, our covenant with Our Lord is renewed, and God, in the person of Jesus Christ, comes to us and makes himself truly present for us in his Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. It is an irreplaceable gift; a foretaste of Heaven itself.

Holy Mass Etiquette
HOLY MASS ETIQUETTE:
Appropriate, modest attire shows respect
for Our Lord Jesus Christ.
When you enter Church,
please keep all conversation,
both before and after Holy Mass,
restricted to the vestibule.
Entering and exiting the Church quietly
allows others to pray in peace.
When you enter the Church proper,
you enter THE THRONE ROOM of GOD -
JESUS is TRULY PRESENT in the tabernacle,
BODY, BLOOD, SOUL & DIVINITY.
Try to arrive 15 minutes before
the celebration of Holy Mass
in order to prepare to receive Our Lord and
PLEASE remain until Holy Mass has ended -
when the Celebrant processes from the Sanctuary.
Remember to take time to thank GOD for the
Glorious Gift of HIS SON, JESUS,
physically present in THE HOLY EUCHARIST.
In charity, show kindness to all and provide a good example.
THANK YOU for your desire to
please Our Lord in His Holy Church.
