Catholic Rites

Document Title: "Catholic Rites
Question from on 05-28-2007:
Is it okay for someone from a different Rite, such as the Maronite Church, administer communion in another Rite's mass, such as the Roman Catholic Church?
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 05-28-2007:
I am not sure what you mean by 'administer communion.' Does this mean serve as an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion? If so, then, yes, this can be permitted. Does this mean that a Maronite priest can celebrate Mass in the Roman rite? This requires faculties (i.e., proper authorization), but it is possible."
