Magdeburg Diocese, Germany, announced that parishes run by priests will become in not too long a time the “exception”, the diocesan magazine Moment writes.
The diocese has already reduced its 180 parishes to 44.
Eight of the new parishes are already now run by lay-teams, without a parish priest.
The diocese has also problems with staffing the parish councils because there are not enough volunteers.

It'd be interesting to know how the lay-team consecrates the Host.
