I attended Mass awhile back in a church that had been completed redone. Kneelers were missing in the old church, so the bishop required that kneelers be installed. Well, the choir was moved to the front of the church and they all sit in chairs - with no kneelers (they’re not on risers, but the floor is ‘stepped’ - plenty of room to place kneelers for them - or to have incorporated kneelers into the design). They stand when everyone else kneels. The altar servers and cantor also stand when everyone ie kneeling.
Is there an ‘exception’ on kneeling if you are in the choir or serving a role such as altar server, cantor? Every other parish I’ve been too has padded kneelers for these people to kneel on - or they just kneel on the floor. This parish seems to have specifically omitted kneelers for these people (I heard the priest didn’t like being required to have his parish kneel, so I’m wondering if he found an exception to support his preference.)
