The ‘Rock’ Church
St. Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church in St. Louis, MO, calls itself the "rock" church. The name takes its origin from a special type of rock used to construct the building. We call it "rock" church in a second meaning due to the rock and roll or rock-like dances that frequently take place during Mass in that church.
Its liturgies often feature teenagers and girls in extravagent clothing performing rock dance routines during the Mass. Above, teenagers dance at the altar during a crowded Mass. Below, barefoot young girls in leotards dance at a morning Mass.
