I have been given a one-of-a-kind opportunity to kick off my career working in a remote part of Africa. The opportunity is truly my dream and I was immensely lucky to find it.
I will be there for six months, so not permanently. Must I turn it down because there is no Mass within reasonable distance? :(
Congratulations on this wonderful opportunity, a fulfillment of a dream!!! What a wonderful blessing and gift to you.
My son spent a semester in a program called Semester at Sea. There was no priest aboard the ship on which he travel. Stops in countries around the world did not always align with Sundays to attend Mass in each country.
He and I spoke with our bishop who explained to us that one can not keep an obligation when there is no Mass available. He suggested that my son attend Mass when available in the various countries, even if it was not on a Sunday.
Speak with your priest and/or bishop, ask for advice and a blessing for your work and travel.
May God bless you richly in this journey and all those whom you meet.
