Why are there still communion services in areas with several Catholic Churches?
Such services are strongly discouraged...READ BELOW:
Redemptionis Sacramentum # 118
Likewise, especially if Holy Communion is distributed during such celebrations, the diocesan Bishop, to whose exclusive competence this matter pertains, must not easily grant permission for such celebrations to be held on weekdays, especially in places where it was possible or would be possible to have the celebration of Mass on the preceding or the following Sunday. Priests are therefore earnestly requested to celebrate Mass daily for the people in one of the churches entrusted to their care.

PADRE POINT: When there are several Catholic Churches in the area it would seem better to coordinate daily masses rather than have a communion service which only caters to a modern 'fast food' / 'take out' mentality. We need to preserve the sacredness of the MASS!
