Can I help with the building of a prayer garden for a Protestant church?

My friend is building a prayer garden as an Eagle Scout project for a Protestant church. I want to help, but I don’t know if it’s ok to help build a prayer garden for a church that professes a faith that I believe is wrong. What should I do? Please answer this as quickly as you can!


If doing so would upset you, then don’t do it. But building a Protestant place for prayer does not compromise our faith as Catholics. Encouraging Christians to pray, whoever they are, is a good thing.
