retired priests

Question from catholic on 2/22/2008:  
Hello Father, What are the required duties of retired priests who are living in a parish rectory with another active priest? Are retired priests obligated to perform masses a few times a week? We have a retired priest living in our parish with our active priest, but it seems he's been doing more of the masses than our active parish priest. Is this allowed for him to do more masses than our own priest does in one week? Catholic
Answer by Fr. Robert J. Levis on 2/24/2008: 
Catholic, A retired priest is relativey free to continue his priestly duties as he is able. Some are ill and can do little; others are well and very active. Priests work details out by themselves in service to the faithful. Fr. Bob Levis
