McCarthy, A. (2012). Renewability of liturgical spaces. Australian Journal of Liturgy, 13 (2), 71-77.
The response of people to particular liturgical spaces, and their understanding of what is suitable, is very diverse. There are particular churches that are under great demand for weddings because they will look good in the photos and look like a ‘real church’. Churches are still being built that do not echo the reforms of the past half century and respond to a particular taste rather than the requirements of the liturgy. Communities still struggle with churches built before the reforming period that are difficult to renovate and difficult to adjust to contemporary liturgical norms so the renewability of liturgical spaces is an issue faced by many communities.
