Attending a Different Church on Christmas Eve

Question from JJ on 12/12/2007:

I have been invited by relatives to attend their church with them on Christmas Eve afternoon. Is this okay to do. I realize I cannot take Communion but would like to join them at their church this one time. Thank you.

Answer by David Gregson on 1/11/2008:

There is no problem in attending non-Catholic services on occasion, but that wouldn't relieve you of the obligation of attending Mass at a Catholic Church on Sundays and other days of obligation, including Christmas.
