  Mass (liturgy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mass is the term used to describe celebration of the Eucharist in the Western liturgical rites of the Roman Catholic Church, in the Anglo-Catholic tradition of Anglicanism, and in some largely High Church Lutheran regions: in Scandinavian countries the main non-Eucharistic Lutheran service is also known as "the Mass".
"Mass" is one of many terms used to describe the Eucharist in the Anglican tradition, the others being "Holy Communion," "Holy Eucharist," or "the Lord's Supper." In the English-speaking Anglcian world, the term used frequently connotes the Eucharistic theology of the one using it.
The liturgy of the mass is typically derived from the Anglican prayer books authorised by the national churches of the Communion.
