  • Maintain silent, quiet reverence in the presence of Our Lord.  If you need to talk to someone, leave the church and hold your conversation elsewhere.

  • Silence all mobile devices. No headphones or electronics with sound may be used.
  • Be mindful of proper and modest attire.
  • Refrain from eating or drinking in the church, including chewing gum or hard candy.
