Why Attend Mass

"If you really thought about who you are, who God is, and how much thanks you owe Him, you would want to go to Mass. The Mass would become the source and center of your spiritual life." - James Stenson.

The Third of the Ten Commandments given to Moses by God is, "Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day" (Exodus 20:8). The Mass was instituted at the Last Supper by Jesus before His Crucifixion. The Last Supper was the First Mass. Hence, we must fulfill the command of Jesus. God made us social beings. He wants us to come together in community to worship Him. Jesus said, "Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I." (Matthew 18:20). If we give God a chance, He will help us experience the tremendous benefits of the Mass and the Eucharist everyday in our lives.
