Found this as a “pinned post” on Facebook and loved seeing it. I know that we talk A LOT about this here at CAF and thought I’d share this with all of you.
Church Dress and Other Church Etiquette
Thank you for your presence and participation at Ss. Cyril &
Methodius. In order to make our weekly celebrations more
conducive to prayers and to preserve the sacredness of our
liturgies, the following are some gentle reminders of proper
church etiquette and proper church attire (especially during the
warmer weather). Please:
Wear attire that is fitting for a Holy Place. Attire that is
not fitting includes: short dresses or skirts, or shorts,
halters or tank tops, tight-fitting/revealing clothes. (If you
are not certain what is/is not fitting, ask your grandmother
Silence your cell phones and electronic devices and refrain
from texting and/or emailing.
Try to arrive on time for Mass
Do not talk, chew gum or eat food in the “Church Proper”.
(Remember the one-hour Fast.)
Thank your for your cooperation! Fr. Ben
IMO, it is nice to see a parish actually say something because the way people dress at my parish drives me nuts sometimes. (i.e. people routinely going up to the altar in jeans and shorts and thinking nothing of it.)
Hope everyone has a good Friday.
