Building or renovating a worship space is a challenging experience for any faith community. This book offers practical advice and procedures for this process. Stressing the need to understand a chapel or church building as a ritual space, the author illustrates how to create a space that serves the assembly in their common prayer. The combination of advice and reflections on the relationship between ritual and space makes this guide useful for anyone wishing to understand the building process in a liturgical context. From assessing the need to planning the dedication, each step in the process is covered. Information is also provided for analyzing the special needs of worship spaces such as cathedrals, health care facilities, chapels for religious communities and Newman centres or student chapels.
