Default Re: while on vacation, the local church priest conducts daily mass in 17 minutes and Sunday Mass lasted 37!

In a word, no.

Some priests are faster than others. And some priests, being mindful of the needs of their parishioners, say Mass in less time.

The cathedral nearest my school has a daily Mass at 12:10 p.m., and it's ended by 12:30. This gives workers in the area time to pickup some lunch and get back their jobs.
