I realize that Catholics dress many different sorts of ways to attend Mass. Some wear dress clothes (jacket, tie, and dress trousers), most wear clothes that are at least somewhat casual, and sadly, some wear clothes that are more suited to the beach or athletic field (shorts, T-shirts, flip-flops, and so on).
How do people tend to dress in the various non-Catholic Christian churches? I realize that the “downtown” Protestant churches (the kind that often have “First” in their name) and African-American churches tend to be dressy. But what about the rest, Baptist, Pentecostal, Wesleyan, Assembly of God, and so on? And I know that there are contemporary, “high-energy”, “millennial-friendly”, “come as you are” churches, but what would be the limits on these where dress is concerned?
I have never figured out how to explain to people who go to a “First” or an A-A church how we give a free pass to someone who comes to Mass in a thin T-shirt, gym shorts, and sandals. Do any other churches allow this kind of thing?
