Women's head covering

Question from Holly on 4/2/2008:

Are we still supposed to have our heads covered when we go to Mass? My priest does not like me to, but I thought St. Paul said that it is shameful to have a woman's head uncovered.

Answer by Catholic Answers on 4/2/2008:

The Church no longer requires women to cover their heads in church. That it was done in the past was a discipline only that could change. However, women who still like to cover their heads at Mass are free to do so. It is not within a priest's authority to express displeasure toward a woman for choosing to do so.
