I am visiting my boyfriend’s family for Thanksgiving, and his family is planning on going to Mass on Thanksgiving day. I have been to his Church before, and the parish is very unorthodox (the whole congregation blesses the Eucharist and the priest doesn’t give the homily). The people at the Church are full of love and love for Christ, and I don’t want to look down on them, but there are many liturgical abuses going on. Is it alright to attend the Mass? I feel uncomfortable there, but I don’t want to “skip Mass” when it is available and I don’t want to come across as “holier than thou”. My boyfriend’s family is very kind and full of faith, but the all the parishioners of their parish are missing out and misguided regarding the liturgy.
Thank you and God Bless
