Be on Time for Christ
Arriving on time for Mass is not just a question of obligation but of love and respect for Our Lord who has gathered us together to share his gifts, and who has some grace to communicate to us in each part of the Mass. It is also a sign of respect for the community with whom we worship and who deserves our presence and the contribution of our prayers in each moment.
Our Usher Ministry is happy to help you find seats in Church before the Mass begins. Once the Liturgy has started, however, if you arrive late for Mass, we would ask that you observe the following protocol:
Please wait for an appropriate time to look for a seat, and be as quiet and discreet as possible. A good rule of thumb to find a seat is during any time the congregation is standing (with the exception of during the Gospel reading.)
And just as we strive to be on time, please stay until after the final blessing. Spending those last few minutes after Communion in communion with the Body and Blood of Christ can be most powerful.
In Matthew 26:40 Jesus asks Peter “Could you not stay with me for one hour?” Let our answer to Him be “Yes” and be present for the entire Mass.
