Should I go to class on Holy Days of Obligation?
I will be in college this upcoming year, so I would only be in class a couple hours of the day anyway. My elementary school and high school (both were Catholic schools) always had school on holy days; we just went to Mass during the day. I recently found out that my high school had decided to have school because they felt not everyone would attend Mass if we didn’t have it during the school day.
Either way, I would still go to church, and I would still find time to give to God on holy days, but should I take off from class too? To be clear, I am not suggesting that I “skip” class. I read on my school’s website that I can miss class for religious holidays if I notify my professors beforehand.
