Our Bishop is closing the one and only Catholic Church near the airport. Isn't there a requirement that there be a church in or very near an airport?
No. It is of course a very nice convenience for travelers in larger airports that Mass might be offered, at least on Sundays. But given the shortage of clergy, and also the nature of modern airline travel with shorter lay‐overs, both the ability of travelers to attend, and the capacity to provide this service is less.
Canonically, travelers who cannot reasonably attend Mass to fulfill their Sunday obligation, may be exempted by their pastor from the Sunday obligation.
