What do I do about going to Mass if I live on a remote island?


#1

I live on a remote island and to attend Mass in the nearest place would be difficult.
It would entail two ferries and an overnight stay at a hotel because of the ferry schedules and the Mass schedules. All told it would cost about 160.00$ a Mass.

I am n a fixed income as I am retired. I do try to trend whenever traveling, but it amounts to a couple of times a year. What is my position in this?
