Is this okay?

I am only 15 and don’t have a way to get home from mass and I am hesitant to walk home back to my house. Is it alright that I don’t attend mass or would It be a sin to do so? I live about 20 minutes to a hour but I have a fear always of walking alone. Please help.

Find a way to get a ride home. Are there buses? Ask your parents or a family friend for a ride. Ask at the church for a ride with a trustworthy person. Talk to the priest and he could connect you with a parishoner to drive you.

Don’t walk when you are afraid, but don’t let this fear prevent you from attending Holy Mass!
