building a church ?

Mar 25, 2015

I know that a few parishes in the Christchurch Diocese are considering building (or restoring) parish churches to replace those destroyed or damaged by the Christchurch earthquakes.  You might find these recordings of Architectural Theologian Denis MacNamara’s August 2013 Christchurch lectures a good place to start your parish discussions. These are provided thanks to Sounds Catholic.
