    I would wear a skirt or dress. This weekend is Easter weekend, people will be dressed nicely.

    I also grew up never thinking of wearing jeans to mass, but some churches are more laid back. Either way, I’d be safe and say no to jeans.

    No jeans…wear a modest looking dress. People will be dressed up since its Easter.

    Those dresses are fine, not all catholics are as modest as you would think.

    Do you have black tights you could wear if you’re nervous about leg? I agree you should be fine with a sweater over a dress.

    Umm, short people wear dress pants all the time.  What are you talking about?

    @AutumnBella:  Those dresses are fine! It’s entirely possible that the parishioners wear jeans, but not all churches are that relaxed and, as others have said, it being Easter weekend people are more likely to dress up.

    Just keep in mind, if you’re concerned about the length of your dress, that there will be lots of standing and kneeling 🙂

    @AutumnBella:  a shortish dess is definitely better than jeans! You can also bring a sweater that you can leave in your lap if it looks too short when you sit

    No jeans, you could do a nice dress pant or a skirt. But there’s a lot of kneeling so be careful with the length.
