Mass: Am I Welcome and what do I do?


#1

I am not Catholic, but the most dramatic experience of my life was while I was visiting a Catholic monastery in my state. I want to go to Mass, but I don't know how to act and fear I will feel out of place. Can you help me?

You've come to the right place to ask questions! These links should be helpful for putting your mind at ease about attending Mass. I included articles, books and audio recordings which will explain the basics of the Mass and the Catholic Church. You are welcome to come to everything we offer and to participate in anything you feel comfortable doing outside receiving Communion. If you have any further questions or concerns that are not answered by these links, you can post on our public forums or contact Catholic Answers directly. I hope to see you in church soon!
