My parish is having an interdenominational ministry help with out with our financial situation and the person helping our parish is Protestant (at least i think he was, our priest said he belonged to a Presbyterian church). I havr no problem with either of those things; I think he could help alot. My concern is what happened at Mass.
During the Homily my priest briefly talked about the Gospel and tied it to our financial situation. Then he introduced the person who was going to help us and the ministry he worked for. After that, he was invited to speak, it was still during the Homily time. Was this allowed? It seems odd to me because we aren’t allowed to participate at Protestant services, so how could a Protestant speak during Mass.
