From Native American sites to twenty-frist-century mega churches, Pennsylvanians have inherited an abundance of sacred spaces. Churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, and cemeteries stand as architectural landmarks in our towns and cities, but their survival is not always assured. Many of these buildings house congregations that struggle to afford the upkeep. Changing needs have made other structures redundant. Some of these have been converted for secular purposes or became historic sites, but the least fortunate sit empty and untended. What is the community's proper role in the stewardship of these sacred and formerly sacred spaces?
