With the recent article appearing in the Letters to the Editor about inappropriate clothing being worn to church, I thought I would share with you a church bulletin announcement I saw in Birmingham, Ala., this summer:
Plans for Parish Swimming Pool Scrapped!
After much study, our finance committee has determined it would not be feasible to construct an indoor pool in our church.
As a result, we can now announce with certainty that those who have been arriving for Mass as if dressed for the pool need not do so.
Also, we hope to keep the air conditioning cranking until well into October, so you do not need to wear shorts, tube-tops, spaghetti strap camis or muscle shirts to Mass.
