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?

We generally have full masses on Sunday (about 1/3 of actual registered parishioners) and weekly masses except Tuesday, and then a Communion service on Tuesday. There are 10 churches within 10-20 miles.

With the retirement of priests, parishes are being grouped to probably share services in the future.
