Service Paper

900 words - 4 pages

For this this assignment I attended a religious service at a Catholic church. I went to the weekly Sunday Mass at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Naperville, Illinois. Since it was my first time every going to a Sunday mass, and first time going to a Catholic Church, I decided on going with one of my Catholic friends, so he can help me out and make me feel like less of an outsider. He told me when to stand up, kneel, and sit down; as well as what to do.
When I first entered the building I was overwhelmed with how the building looked like on the inside and the amount of people that came to the service. As big as the church was, it was still filled with people. When we entered, there was no one to greet us at the door; we just walked into the Church.
The service was exactly an hour long. We first started by sitting down on benches like everyone else, I chose that we sit in the back so I can observe what is going on throughout the building while the service is going on.

Each priest was wearing a purple gown with a giant golden cross sewn on it. One of the priests, who happened to be the older one, seemed to be the one doing most of the work, while the other priest looked like he was assisting the older priest. For example, during communion, the older priest was the one who took out the bread and the wine and handed the wine to the other priest.
During the service, the older priest gave a short sermon. He recited different sections from the Bible which were readings from Isaiah, Romans, and Matthew. The sermon lasted about 15 minute’s total.
Also, throughout the service, many rituals were performed. One of the rituals performed was the Breaking of the Bread. Then after...
