"Is dislike of the 'sign of peace' and hand-holding at the Lord's Prayer cause to avoid Mass?"

No. We are not excused from attending Mass because of such practices. Attending Mass is a grave obligation.

If possible, you may find it best to avoid the distracting/uncomfortable 'sign of peace' and hand-holding at the Our Father by attending the Traditional Latin Mass. [Note: It is still possible – thanks be to God! – to lawfully attend the Traditional Latin Mass throughout the world. The Traditional Latin ('Tridentine') Mass differs from the 1960's Novus Ordo Mass in many & significant ways (try here for more information). To locate a Traditional Latin Mass in your area, try here.]

Otherwise, if you object to the 'sign of peace' and must attend the Novus Ordo Mass, you might try here for ideas. You might also bring it up with the priest (but, unfortunately, you may not receive a warm reception).

If you object to hand-holding at the Our Father (e.g. because you don't care to touch strangers, because you don't want others grabbing your hands, because you find it unsanitary or inappropriate, because you feel forced/obliged, because it takes your focus off the Lord's Prayer, etc.), you might bring this matter up with the priest (again, regrettably, you may not receive a warm reception). Note that the practice is NOT obligatory.
