    neither can I, I just like it being spoken and that mass was held for centuries but was only replaced in the 1960s but it feels much more divine in my opinion
    Btw do I have to pay any money...?

    What a Catholic Mass is like really depends on the parish and the parish priest. Generally it's very structured and there will be multiple services on a Sunday, some with music, some without. There is an offetory collection halfway through but you are not obliged to give.

    Most parishes will have booklets that tell you what to say when, and when to sit/stand/kneel.

    I really enjoy Sunday Mass though I am not able to go, due to illness Nothing beats Sunday Mass with a good parish priest and a lively congregation (these things are not confined to any particular denomination, obviously!).

    Any questions, do feel free to message me! I've got a busy week but will answer when poss :jebus:

    Specifically catholic church.
    But any (serious) answers would be appreciated.
    Why not go to one?
    Sit anywhere. Ask questions if you have them - at the end and to the priest. Or see who might be friendly. As long as you are respectful (No Communion if you are not Catholic or have not had Confession), there is no issue. You may walk up to the priest for a blessing during Communion, as I do from time to time.
