Traditional Latin Mass in the Catholic Diocese of Dallas

Mater Dei Dress Code
To help facilitate the spirit of prayer and recollection, and in charity to God and neighbor, please respect the following dress code at Mater Dei:
Both men and women – All dress should be clean and neat according to one’s means, and modest. Casual clothes should be avoided as regular Mass attire (shorts, athletic shoes, etc.). On weekdays, one does not have to be quite as formally dressed, and for those going to or from work, exceptions are understandable, but one’s clothing should still reflect modesty and reverence.
Men – Either a button down shirt or a pullover shirt with a collar, and neat and clean pants; Men should consider wearing a tie to Church and in cooler weather, a suit coat.
Women – Clothes that are not tight-fitting. No see-through or revealing material such as sheer fabric or lace as the only layer (except for head coverings of course). Modest necklines (no low-cut, plunging or deep-scoop). Shoulders covered and 1/4 length sleeves. Skirts should cover the knee when seated; no slit above the knee.
Veiling is welcomed and appreciated – 1 Corinthians 11:2-16
