It was required for the elementary school kids at St Helena's to attend mass as a whole class. We had Fr MacErnerny (SP?) who always gave talks directed to us little ones. Can't remember when we did not have to go with the class. Later we were on our own and all my Catholic friends went voluntarily (lest pain of mortal sin for a deliberate act of omission). There was a brief period when some of us "rebelled" and did not attend but soon had second thoughts about it. Rarely went with my parents thought they always did go together. Still attend every Sunday & Holy Days. I need all the help I can get but I also go to give Thanks for everything.....................
