Finding Religion at the Mall


Over at the Dirt Lawyer's Blog, David Stejkowski has written a very cool post on malls and chapels, with a particular focus on the Philippines where such combos are more common.

But in the Philippines, specifically Manila, mall operators need to plan for space so priests can celebrate Sunday mass. A largely Catholic nation (85%, IIRC), when I last visited Manila I was flabbergasted when I went to the mall and saw Mass being celebrated in the middle of the courtyard! No, church was not held in a vacant storefront (I hardly remember seeing any vacancies) was right between stores and you were asked to be relatively quiet while walking by.
