Here in the RC Diocese of Albany, there are several “priestless” parishes. In fact, my pastor has been sent to say mass during the week in one particular parish, to consecrate a sufficient number of hosts for their weekend liturgy. Has anyone else gone through this experience?

I believe that the Catholic Church can recruit enough priests or at least deacons. They need orthodox bishops to do so. Some diocese, orthodox ones, have enough vocations and some seem to have given up recruitment. Much the way that the liberal religious orders of sisters have no vocations but some orthodox orders have many.
