I recently was shocked by an experience I had at a local Catholic university. They have a beautiful church with a high altar in a Benedictine arrangement, baldachin, and crucifix. This entire arrangement is obscured from view with a purple drape. What shocked me is that I learned from a friend there that the staff directs students to put up the drape by standing on the altar! This altar is no longer used, but I presume that it still contains relics, and still would be disrespectful even if they were removed. They also had some papers and pens scattered on the altar as if it was just some table. On seeing this (I was there outside of Mass time) I simply removed the papers and pens to a pew and did nothing else. I immediately regretted not writing a note about it.
My question is this: since I have just about no connection to the university, what can I do? Obviously I’m praying, but I feel as though I should do something more direct so that something so simple and awful can be avoided. Any ideas?
