Notes

Abstract: Catholicism is the largest single denomination in the world. Aside from any shared religious experience, there is also a shared social experience among Catholics, that of attendance and participation in the Mass. Vatican II specifically and consciously changed the Mass to encourage more participation from the attendees, and this Mass structure is fairly continuous the world over. What, then, is the structure of the Mass? What sort of behavior occurs during Mass? In what ways is this behavior normalized? The seemingly formal and highly �scripted� Mass services provide a venue for explicating the mechanics of the common assumption that religion is a social phenomena. At the base level, addressing social participation in this specific setting adds breadth to the entire field of sociological inquiry. More specifically, a whole body of work exists defining �the Catholic imagination� and the elements that contribute to a unified Catholic identity. The Mass is a large socializing factor that forms a strong basis for Catholics to be able to have identification as a group, yet little writing has delved into the social experience of this socializing force.
