Mass is still a part and parcel of Irish society, and not going at Easter or Christmas can be considered an atrocious offence by the parish.
However, heading to mass can be a bit of an ordeal.
There's the whole what to wear question, and the panic when you realise that you're actually expected to sit up and listen to the Gospel according to whoever rather than scroll through Instagram for the hour.
Luckily, Emma Doran's new comedy video is your ultimate field guide on how to handle that mandatory mass.
"We've all had to do it, we've all had to go to mass for some sort of family reason, but I have some tips that will hopefully help you pull off the look," she says, before bestowing upon us the most blessed of all mass hacks to help us through.
First up, Emma advises rocking that noughties foundation lips look, so that know one knows you're completely bluffing your way through those prayers (seriously, we can't be the only ones who still aren't used to the new format of the prayers?)
Secondly, she recommends donning some nice, chunky bangles to clatter together when the donation basket comes around to distract people from knowing that you're not putting a cent in the thing.
And finally, no mass outfit is complete without a crutch, to avoid the whole sitting/kneeling/standing debacle.
