Worship was formal in the Roman Empire after Christianity was legalized by the Edict of Milan in 311, and then it became the official religion of the Empire by decree of the Emperor Theodosius in 380. They used old Roman courts (basilicas) as houses of worship, and the clergy adopted the dress of Roman officials. It's a matter of personal preference. As a convert to Catholicism I don't find the Roman rite to be too stiff. Some do. I prefer the mass over a service centered around a sermon. Others have different preferences.
