The hothouse chapel reactions

The hothouse chapel reactions

Michael Rose has posted some reactions to his article about Ave Maria University’s proposed new glass church. Some of the letters agree with Rose’s criticisms, while others disagree and there are even some good rebuttals of his criticisms. Rose did make one mistake. He questioned the need for a church that seats 3,500 at a university with only 122 students. A letter writer notes that in addition to planning an enrollment of 5,000, the accompanying town of Ave Maria is expected to have 25,000 residents, most of whom will presumably be Mass-going Catholics. In fact, the church may only be barely large enough to accommodate them every Sunday. Interesting reading.
