Sunday best should be worn by all on Sundays and feasts: suit and tie for men and boys, dresses for ladies. Men keep their heads uncovered within church; women are encouraged to wear a scarf, hat or mantilla.

To receive Holy Communion: one must be a Catholic, in the state of grace, one-hour fasting at least. In the traditional liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.

Kindly switch OFF your mobile phone before you enter the church.
