Outside Manning Chapel this morning,

Outside Manning Chapel this morning, there was a sign announcing that the Ecumenical Protestant and Imani Jubilee church services were cancelled today due to the long weekend. I understand that there are many religions in the world, and I'm accepting of that, but I have to confess it's a little weird to me, this idea of totally cancelling religious services due to a secular holiday. People may or may not actually go in any given week, but to not have the option? The Catholic community cancelled their 5pm Saturday service due to the weekend, but the 10:30 Sunday Mass was held as usual. Attendance was lower than usual, but there were still a fair number of people there....
