Mass Attire

Does what we wear to church matter?

Mass is holy; it’s the sacrifice of our Savior for us. Saints and angels are with you at Mass, surrounding the Eucharist. It’s a break from the stress of the world, an opportunity to refocus yourself on Christ for the rest of the week, and a partaking in heavenly communion.

The significance of Mass is endless, so your intentional dress at Mass is a statement to yourself and to others that this is not just any other activity… this is important.

Children know by their special clothes that Mass is a unique time and will follow their parents’ example for how to act in Mass. It’s not every day that a five year old puts on a polo shirt and nice shoes.

Many can respond to such matters by saying, “Isn’t God just happy that a person is there, regardless of what they wear?” And the answer of course is yes, God is always happy when a person is present at Mass.

However, that fact does not mean that one’s attire therefore has no significance. God can both be always pleased by an individual’s presence and clothing one wears can matter. This is because our intentions, our motivations, and our valuations are expressed in what we wear.

When you dress for Mass, you should always consider the following questions:

  • What is my clothing expressing in my intentions and values?
  • What amount of freedom do I have in choosing my attire right now? (i.e., if you’re traveling and don’t have any other clothes, you don’t really have any other option)
  • Does my clothing serve to support the sacredness and beauty of the Mass?
    • The Catechism puts it well: “Bodily demeanor (gestures, clothing) ought to convey the respect, solemnity, and joy of this moment when Christ becomes our guest.”

Consider dressing as you would when planning to set foot inside a Church in Rome. No one is allowed in those churches or the Vatican unless shoulders and upper legs are covered – no shorts, no tank-tops, and no otherwise revealing clothes. Thank you for your respect of Our Lord and for the example to others in your modest and respectful dress.
