I went to a First Communion Mass today and other than the talking before Mass started, everything else seemed to be okay.

While reading some of these comments (and other topics), it just amazes me how 'liberal' our parish is. Our Priest had a Homily in the Fall encouraging the congregation to chat with their neighbors to bring the feeing of community and family. However, 'we' are never that loud... at least I don't think so. I am usually in the Choir area and we are all chatting anyway! *lol*

But seriously, if the priest came and said for everyone to be quite, it is extremely disrespectful to go on like that!!

You know, it wasn't even so much that people were talking, it was just SOOOO loud.

Sometimes you have to wonder if people think the rules are for everyone but them.

Marianne, I had to smile at your comment about how your choir is usually chatting anyway. My dh and I are long time members of our choir and one of the pet peeves I have is the loud talking that goes on in the choir loft before Mass. We're only about 15-20 of us total, and about half of those enjoy "visiting" before Mass. Honestly, it's like they're out in the parking lot it can get so loud. I think they have no idea they're in church! And it's not only the women! We have six guys in the choir and they can be as bad if not worse. My dh and I usually move to one of the few pews up there off to the side so as not to be brought into conversation with anyone else. Thankfully yesterday morning, our music director told them to quiet down. I don't think they realize just how loud they get. It's even more obvious, because the people in the church downstairs ARE quiet before Mass. The people do visit and chat for just a bit after Mass though, but they don't linger.
