2. To attend Divine Liturgy on Sundays and Holy Days.

4. To confess our sins and to receive the Holy Mysteries at least

5. Not to solemnize marriage at forbidden times.
6. To pray to God every day, especially at morning and evening.
Wow, these sound like what I learned from the nuns, when I was Catholic. Tho, I remember the last one being to pray for the living and the dead. Then, of course, there were the 7 Corporal and 7 Spiritual Works of Mercy.
I just checked the the Catholic Church commandments are:
to keep the Sundays and Holy Days of obligation holy, by hearing Mass and resting from servile work;
to keep the days of fasting and abstinence appointed by the Church;
to go to confession at least once a year;
to receive the Blessed Sacrament at least once a year and that at Easter or thereabouts;
to contribute to the support of our pastors;
not to marry within a certain degree of kindred nor to solemnize marriage at the forbidden times.
The traditional enumeration of the corporal works of mercy is as follows:
To feed the hungry;
To give drink to the thirsty;
To clothe the naked;
To harbour the harbourless;
To visit the sick;
To ransom the captive;
To bury the dead.
The spiritual works of mercy are:
To instruct the ignorant;
To counsel the doubtful;
To admonish sinners;
To bear wrongs patiently;
To forgive offences willingly;
To comfort the afflicted;
To pray for the living and the dead.
