Olympics: solid attendance at athletes’ daily Masses

Catholic World News - August 06, 2012

The layman who coordinates the Church’s outreach at the Olympics is reporting solid attendance by athletes at daily Masses.

“I am delighted to be able to report that aside from there being three Masses celebrated everyday within the athlete’s village itself, specifically for the athletes and officials, the highest attendance at any of the religious services is at daily Mass,” said James Parker, Catholic executive coordinator for the Olympics. “There are a number of athletes and officials from various nations who are coming there every day and they are placing Christ at the beginning and the center of all they do.”
