The local media continues to cover the sit-in at a closed parish on a daily basis. Here are some interesting revelations today. The article says Fr. Coyne attended a “lay-led service at 8:30 am, and took Communion at the altar from the sacristan.”
What we have here is a Communion service, with a priest present. And apparently, Fr. Coyne, departing as pastor, has left the Eucharist behind. Those two conditions violate a whole host of canon laws.
