Default What form/use/rite Mass do you attend?

I don't want this to be a debate, rather, just a happy discussion. I just want to see what the general census here on CAF is in regards of Mass attendance. What form, rite, or usage do you mostly attend? Personally, I go to the EF and the OF, both. How about you?

Multiple choice allowed, because I know a lot of people attend two forms!

OF, Maronite, Byzantine, EF (in this order). The only reason why I rarely attend the EF is that the pews in the Church are built for very short people and I have no room for kneeling or sitting, it is very distracting, it would help for a good penance but is not good for a reverent participation.

Is this an old church? I have noticed that in the old churches the pews are smaller and closer together because, I assume, people were generally smaller than today. We went to an old Dominican church for Good Friday and my husband was very uncomfortable trying to squeeze his 6 foot frame into the pews, and even I noticed the difference from our newer regular parish.

I attend the OF and rarely a Byzantine DL. (The Byzantine church has pews, but no kneelers.)

OF vernacular. Once I start formation I'll be attending a few Dominican Rite Masses as well.

You got it right, 1884. Everything is bigger in Texas except some church's pews.

Default Re: What form/use/rite Mass do you attend?

In this order: OF vernacular, OF Latin, Divine Liturgy, EF.

I don't have a car of my own or I might go to the OF in Latin more often than in the vernacular, but I am lucky to have a wonderful parish close by with a very reverent OF in vernacular. I very rarely attend the EF, but have on occasion and will again, on occasion in the future. The Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy is absolutely wonderful, but much further away, so I would probably attend more often if it was closer.

You have a traditional Dominican Rite mass near you?

I heard through the grapevine the local Priory might do them every so often. Need to meet with them first (same old story, there). If they don't, then I might have to travel to go to one.

I figure since my wife and I are joining the order, I should make the effort to attend the Rite every so often.

I hope one of the priories near me celebrates the traditional Dominican mass on a regular basis. Hopefully, there is renewed interest after the one we just had at St Vincent Ferrer.
