Question of the Day for Friday, August 9, 2013

Communion services

Q. We are a medium-size parish with two priests and two deacons. Before the deacons came we had daily Mass. Now we often have no daily Mass but have Communion services run by one of the deacons. Is there some desire on the part of the U.S. bishops to make Mass and Communion services interchangeable?

A. Here’s a reply from OSV columnist Msgr. M. Francis Mannion:

The U.S. bishops generally have absolutely no desire to make Mass and Communion services interchangeable. There is a world of difference between them, and Mass always takes priority. Indeed, Mass should be celebrated daily in every parish with a resident priest.
