WHEN YOU VISIT
Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us or talk with an usher when you visit.
What do I need to do to become Catholic?
If you feel moved by the Holy Spirit to become Catholic, please contact the Parish Office, All Saints Roman Catholic Church, at 502-477-6676 or by email at [email protected].
Is childcare available during Mass?
There is no childcare available during Mass. There is, however, a Cry Room located at the back of church, where you can sit with infants and small children and still hear the Mass.
I’m not Catholic ... so, how do I know when to sit, stand and kneel?
Whether a non-Catholic, or just inactive and not been to church for a while, there are liturgy books on the table in the back of church to assist you with the Order of Mass. The Sunday Liturgy is located by date: all the readings and prayer responses. There is also a Worship aid containing the music for the Liturgy available by the Baptismal Font near the entrance to the church.
I’m not Catholic ... is it okay for me to participate in communion?
The doctrine in the Catholic church does not allow for non-Catholics to participate in Communion. You can, however, walk in the procession at communion and receive a blessing. All you have to do is approach with your arms crossed over your chest, palms on your shoulders.
Liturgy is the work of the people...What is my part?
The work of the people in Liturgy is to participate. That means to sing the songs, actively respond when responses are indicated and to pray aloud when prayer is recited.
