I struggled with where to begin this thread. I hope the moderator will find an appropriate home for it if this is not adaquet. Especially if it may get more attention somewhere else.
Basically speaking without getting into a long story, I will summarize my issue:
I will likely be living in two distinct residences. One, (primary residence) near my work, during the week, and the other a weekend home 65 miles away from the primary residence. This isn’t an easy decision. Family, friends and a love of the area drive my need to live far from where I work. Finances are forcing a much reduced living style where I am essentialy dividing my means by a factor of 2. (in other words both residences suffer in value)
Desiring parish involvement (RCIA, possibly ST. Vincent Society etc etc.) I am wondering how best to accomplish this. Obviously I will need to fulfill my Sunday obligation in the seconday residence. Most parish activities are during weekday nights when I will be 65 miles away.
Anyone else here find themselves in the same situation? How has it worked for you? I realize this is not a very common issue, but I will hope I get some respondents anyhow.
