I hope I make this question understandable. We have an old church in our neighborhood without a basement. The kitchen and meeting rooms are behind the sanctuary. On one side of the sanctuary is an adoration chapel, (which also started out as and continues to serve as a cry room on Sundays) and of course the monstrance is usually closed unless someone comes in for adoration.
Problem, the absolutely only way to get to the meeting rooms and kitchen behind the sanctuary is to go through either the sanctuary (no altar rails, wide open sanctuary) or the adoration chapel.
I have always thought going through the adoration chapel is best, unless the monstrance is open but I am wondering if that is correct. Seems like the sanctuary is becoming a roadway.
