5 Reasons to attend Mass every Sunday

Increase the power of your prayers. In church, you get to pray directly to Jesus. “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).

Claim your right. As a baptized Christian, you have the right to put your needs before Jesus and to offer your gifts to the Creator.

Find something new. You can always find at least one idea within the Mass that makes sense, seems possible, practical, intriguing, or worth thinking about in terms of your own life. Look for it in the readings, the Gospel, the homily, the intercessions, or the Eucharistic prayers.

It’s easy evangelization. Your presence in church tells others that you consider your faith important.

Pray like the best. Most of the words of the Mass address God in tones and phrases that are more beautiful than we could come up with on our own. Tune in to the words, especially the Eucharistic prayer, and make them your own.
