Sacrament meeting is the weekly worship service held on Sunday in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).
Sacrament meetings are held in individual wards or branches in the chapel of the meetinghouse. The bishop or branch president of the ward or branch presides, unless a higher authority is present. Anyone is invited to attend, whether they are a member of the church or not. Sacrament meetings are not held during stake or district conferences, or during the annual and semiannual General Conference of the LDS Church.
Attendees of sacrament meetings generally wear "Sunday formal" dress. Men wear suits and ties, and women wear modest dresses or skirts. Children are encouraged to attend, but when they become unruly, the parents generally escort them into the lobby.

Instead I got drunk and hollered at her and called her a harpy.”
