     PROPER ATTIRE FOR CHURCH ATTENDANCE

     

    Chancery Notice 25 June 2009

     

    A church or chapel is a place set apart for divine worship and prayers. The faithful should therefore be properly and decently dressed while taking part in the liturgy or praying in these sacred places. A simplified Dress Code for church attendance, to be posted at the entrances to churches and chapels open to the faithful, has been laid down by Bishop John TONG after consultation with the Council of Priests and the Deaneries. The Bishop exhorts the faithful to abide by this Dress Code, in order that they may give due reverence to the sacred character of a church or chapel. The same Code applies to other visitors to these places.

     

    Rev. Lawrence LEE

    Chancellor 

     

    *** Let us enter the church with a solemn attitude ***

    **Decently and properly dressed is one way to show our respect to God**

     

    Please refrain from wearing clothes which are too short or too revealing. 

    Mini-skirts and short pants should also be avoided.
