@Jossy, yes looks sad still should be appriciated as people come and participate in the events. Just for some idea, here in this football ground at least people can sit on the grass, what about those who stand more than 2.30 to 3.00 hours in the church compound, basketball court and school ground. Arranging over 15000 chairs will not be practicle during communion and other services. Report says that there were around 20000 people in attendence during this particular mass. According to my knowledge on Good Friday there were around 9 main services and on Easter Sunday around 10 services in English and one in Arabic. How they can think about the chairs when all the services are jam packed?
