Q: WHO MAY OFFER THE MASS?
A: An ordained priest offers the Mass. The priest who celebrates the Mass is called the celebrant. The priest actually represents Christ, and the sacrifice of the Mass is really offered by Christ, our great High Priest. Because there is only one sacrifice for all time, there is really only one Priest who offers it (see Hebrews 7:23-28).
