The New Priestless Parishes – a query from a Pastoral Council member?
“We are in the lucky situation that we have a priest who says mass twice a week for us as a favour to the bishop. The priest is paid from our account for these masses.
Should we as a church community have to contribute towards the priest’s collection when we have no priest? We currently send a significant amount of money to the bishop each quarter for this collection whilst we struggle to keep the lights on and have to be organising fundraisers.
