Who does she think you will be kicking out by taking their seat?

LOL, I think you might be over-anxious about this. They probably just meant "get there early to get THE SEATS you WANT, rather than the leftovers somewhere in the lonely back."

Just relax and get there when you get there, and if they are rude against your convenience, force them to forgive you by reminding them of their supposed beliefs about forgiveness even of made-up supposed "wrongs".

They are probably embarrassed about not giving a correct number to the priest or the food/amenities or whatever.

Also, most Catholic functions like that people are afraid to arrive late and be embarrassed, that is probably why they really want you to arrive early (also so your arrival won't be a distraction to this "most important" ritual).

Ignore all that and just be confident, self-caring, and nice.

If I had kids, I personally would never ask friends to come to any of their performances, school, or religious events. Would you expect your friends to go? I sat through 3 of her kids Communions and that was hard.
I've got the same problem on 17th May but I have a cunning plan that is more cunning than a fox that has just been appointed professor of cunning at Cunning University, Cunningtown.
