Attending Mass

The moral obligation to attend Mass has been Church law since the fourth century.  But rather than think of it as something we “have to do,” rather we should think of Mass as valuable time spent with our loving God and with others.

When we go to Mass, we begin to see that we are not alone and recognize that we are part of the Body of Christ, and if one part of the body is missing, the whole body suffers. (8:38)
