The Philadelphia Church Project's Bottom 10: #4
You know, I've decided we're being too mean on these poor churches. We should just stop this terrible charade and leave them in peace.
Just kidding. And the next victim is.....
#4: Mother of Divine Grace (MDG)
Why They're Here:
It's a church I literally almost walked out on--and if not for the fact that the Project's entourage voted against it, I would have. I was snookered by this church's size and construction date, hoping to find another St. Athanasius. Instead, I was treated to one of our worst church experiences.
At least St. William has some some size to fall back on; MDG doesn't even have that. Combine that with an absolute dearth of ornamentation, and you have a church you should avoid like the plague.
The fact that it's a few blocks from Church Alley only makes it more insulting. Seriously, never come here.
Why It's Not Lower:
As nauseating as the Project finds this building, it's still better than the ones that follow it.
