"Why don't churchgoers simply take mass transit to services,"
Because some of them might be elderly or disabled or live in areas where "mass transit" is either unavailable or inconvenient. "Mass transit" doesn't reach all of the "masses".

Also, the weekend Metro track work is certainly a factor that affects the availability and reliability of "mass transit". And last I checked, Sunday services are held on weekends.


"or attend chhurches closer to where they currently live?"

Maybe, just perhaps, because they want to keep attending the church they've attended all their lives. Where they went to Sunday school, got confirmed, got married, christened their kids, had their parenrts' or spouses funeral, etc.

It's not all about you.

Hope that clears it up.
