Our pastor is asking the women in our parish not to wear head covering at Mass as it is distracting. He even went as far as an article in the Sunday bulletin stating that the Code of Canon Law (1983) eliminated the requirement for women to cover their heads. He further comments that those who feel they want to follow the old code certainly can, but to do all of what it says then men should sit separated from the ladies on the opposite side of the church.
Is it okay for women that want to show respect at Mass to cover their heads? Shouldn’t anyone who want to wear a head covering be allowed to do so?
