Saw the following article THIS IS PROOF THAT DRIVE-IN CHURCHES WERE A REAL THING IN THE 40S and this did not surprise me. Although I did like the photos. I knew that the late Rev. Robert Schuller started his ministry having services at a Drive-In.
He went from Drive-In to eventually building the Crystal Cathedral. This is of course now Christ Cathedral for the Diocese of Orange. Can’t say that I am a fan of the design, although if Superman ever needs a new Fortress of Solitude maybe the diocese can turn a profit.
Still what if had had continued at a Drive-In? Perhaps the previous bishop would have bought that instead.
So how could Catholics adapt a Drive-In Mass? For one I guess Catholics would have to buy Lowriders so that they could go from kneeling to rising and vice versa.
For the offering they could have a car tag system where they photograph the plate and send the bill. Although postage could be more than the $1 bills collected.
Communion would be a problem though. Maybe they could have a track where people board a train. Yes, bring back Communion Rail.
Imagine the time savings. Many people already leave right after Communion to get to their car. This would eliminate that step.
It no problem here with temps at zero every one is inside a well heated church.
“Still what if had had continued at a Drive-In?”
I think that If you were involved in any way with driving churches Jeff, I’m sure that you would give Catholics pretty good sermons. NO? LOL
