Closing a parish or merging two parishes because there aren’t enough ordained men is especially heinous considering there are so many qualified lay people to act as parish life director or pastoral associate. It’s the bishops’ way of saying ‘fuck you’ to lay people. You’d rather close down an entire community of Christ than trust a well-educated, well-experienced, well-formed lay person? Mm-hmm.
