There are limited priests in my diocese to the number of parishes. I guess that’s pretty much the norm now in the U.S. The pastor of my parish is also the pastor of another parish, we share. The other parish has eight masses a week and my parish has one. I don’t mean to sound juvenile, but to me it’s like the elephant in the room. If a person can not make the one parish Mass of the week on Sunday morning the person has to go to another parish. The priest is often at my parish during the week, but he only prays the Mass once at our parish.
A number of people like myself can’t make the one Mass a week scheduled on Sunday. I can only make it to my parish twice a month at best. I am only asking for a Saturday Vigil Mass, which would still leave the other parish with 6 more Masses a week. Is there an official or suggested way of requesting more Masses?
