While some of you gals might spend the morning with your parents in the main sermon hall, others may split off into teen-centered Sunday school groups. Or maybe you spend part of your Sunday singing with the choir! We can’t wait to hear all about your favorite parts of church!

      9. Does your church eat together?
      Yes! We have the Eucharist aka communion. I’m Catholic so it’s a part of every Mass.
      10. How long do you usually spend at church on Sundays?
      An hour to an hour and a half. It depends on how long the priest’s sermon is and if there’s anything going on after church that day.
