Church Etiquette

CHURCH ETIQUETTE 

As we come together each week to worship, the following gentle reminders are intended to protect the sacred environment of our Liturgies and to respect those around us. 

COMMUNICATION DEVICES

Please silence all cell phones, tablets and all other electronic devices before entering church. 

SILENCE IN CHURCH 

We are in the house of God and as such should show respect. Some people come to prepare for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by praying while others stay after Mass to give thanksgiving for receiving our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Please hold all your interactions with others for the Narthex or outside. 

ARRIVING ON TIME

Please arrive for Mass on time. Remember in winter season to allow extra time to park. Where unforeseen circumstances arise and Mass is in progress, please be discreet as possible when taking your seat.

LEAVING BEFORE THE FINAL BLESSING

Mass is not over until we receive the final blessing and the Priest left the altar. Just as you would not leave the table at home before the meal has ended, we ask you to stay for the final blessing. 

CLOTHING

As we enter the House of our Lord for worship in the Holy Mass, we ask that you dress modestly and appropriately, showing a Christian respect for others. 

CLEAN ENVIRONMENT

Leaving a clean church for the next Mass provides a spiritual welcome to all who enter. On your way out of the church, please look around your seat and return all song sheets, Missalettes, prayer cards, worship aids, bulletins, notices, etc., to their proper place in the back of the church.
