Louisiana Catholic Church Uses Humor To Press Issue of Summer Mass Attire

I suspect there was a great Amen from people ( folks like me ) and some grumbling by some about this Hammond Catholic Church announcement.

After much study, our finance committee has determined it would not be feasible to construct an indoor swimming 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 straps, camis, or mini shirts to Mass.

However some disagree . See  Casual Dress and the Body of Christ: A Plea for Bathrobes
