"I urge you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, your spiritual worship." (Romans 12:1)
Out of respect for Our Lord Jesus Christ and for the edification of our neighbor, we beg all to appear in church decent in deportment and modest in dress.
For gentlemen and lads: Neither shorts, T-shirts nor sneakers meet the norms of modesty.
For ladies and girls: neither shorts, slacks, sleeveless, short nor low-cut dresses meet the norms of modesty.
Furthermore, according to apostolic custom or Church law, gentlemen are bareheaded in church; and ladies are requested to cover their heads.
However, no one has the right to question others, especially visitors. It belongs to the parish priest alone to instruct the laity when they repeatedly dress or deport below expectation.
Thank you for your charity!
Note: Please turn off all cell phones in church.
