Outsourcing prayer.

From today's New York Times:

With Roman Catholic clergy in short supply in the United States, Indian priests are picking up some of their work, saying Mass for special intentions, in a sacred if unusual version of outsourcing.

American, as well as Canadian and European churches, are sending Mass intentions, or requests for services like those to remember deceased relatives and thanksgiving prayers, to clergy in India.

("Short on priests, U.S. Catholics outsource prayers to Indian clergy," Saritha Rai, New York Times 6.13.04, reg req'd)
