Issue: Is missing Sunday Mass a mortal sin?



Response: "The requirement to attend Mass on Sunday and other holy days of obligation, rooted in the Third Commandment and codified in Church law (cf. Code of Canon Law, canons 1246-48) is a serious obligation for all Catholics. A Catholic who (a) is able to attend Sunday Mass (i.e., who is not impeded by illness, lack of transportation, etc.), (b) knows the seriousness of this requirement, and © nonetheless freely chooses to miss Mass, thereby commits a mortal sin (cf. Catechism, no. 2181)."
