I have attended many a Catholic mass on the battlefield where the priest used a 55 gal. drum, the hood of a jeep or a stack of ammunition boxes as the alter and these we were located a long-long way from a sanctified church.

Catholic Exchange wrote:In general, the Church’s assumption is that while Mass should be celebrated in the most reverent environment possible, it is often better to celebrate it in a less ideal place than not to celebrate it at all.
A missionary priest might travel hundreds of miles to a remote village, where he celebrates the liturgy in the back of his pickup truck, if no better option is available! Along similar lines, Masses must necessarily be offered in makeshift places in those areas where the Church is being persecuted (think communist China) or is simply forbidden to exist (like Saudi Arabia).
