This is something more that I’ve been wondering about for a while rather than a matter of pressing urgency, but it is something that I ought to consider and about which my understanding of canon is unclear.
I live about a mile away from the border between two states and thus two dioceses, with my the see of my diocese being well over an hour’s journey away. My usual practice over the last few years is to travel into the neighbouring diocese on Sunday, along with a few others who live in my general vicinity, to hear the Traditional Latin Mass there, where there has been a stable TLM community since the indult days. In my own diocese, we have a few priests who have recently begun to say the Traditional Latin Mass, but irregularly, often at difficult times for me, and (except for once a month when one does so nearer to my home) at a much further distance away than the parish hosting the TLM community in the neighbouring diocese.
I often wonder about such issues as baptisms, weddings, funerals, and the like, which I understand a parish pastor has a right to conduct for his subjects. In many areas (not mine, unfortunately), I know that bishops established personal parishes for those faithful who prefer the TLM and have invited FSSP priests in to man them. In the absence of that, however, would one who prefers the TLM have any option to receive such sacraments or services said according to the 1962 Missal?
And canonically, what would be the state of persons like me who generally fulfill their Sunday obligations outside not just their parish, but their diocese of domicile?
