U.K. Cathedrals Try New Approach

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Cathedrals in the U.K. are going to great lengths to try to draw in a younger generation of potential parishioners. And of course, nothing says communing with the divine like a round of miniature golf. Rochester Cathedral, just south of London, turned its insides into a mini golf course, and the Norwich Cathedral, a couple hours away, installed a carnival ride inside its nave. It's a response to the Archbishop of Canterbury, who said last month, if you can't have fun in a cathedral, you don't know what fun is. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
