My mother has been going to choir practice at her catholic church every Wednesday night since 1949. Religious instruction for adult converts was also on Wednesday evenings. As were Knights of Columbus sessions, Daughters of Isabella meetings, etc.

There wasn't an actual Mass on Wednesday night, but nearly all the other church groups met on that night. Presumably because it's midweek, and a good time for meetings. Plus this was standard enough in the Midwest that many other community groups avoided any meetings or functions on Wednesday night, because they would lose attendance -- Wednesday was always "church night".
