When we visit rural communities like Bath on the weekends we usual ask the desk clerk where the nearest church is for Sunday services. Sometimes they know, often they have no clue and we are left to looking in the phone book or brochures or Saturday morning paper for the information.
Here are the ones that might help you.

We went to church while on vacation in Bath, NY. There was only one Catholic church in the area and it is served by a "roaming" priest. These smaller communities do not have enough parishoners to require a full-time priest, so one priest services several districts, "roaming" from church to church depending on the needs of each area.
This church was actually run by a deacon and his lay-council. They determine church events and organize all the support the parishioners need; petitioning the diocese for funds when necessary.
ANYWAY..... getting to the point; we were in church and the deacon saw us come in and knew we were not regulars. So he came up to us and began a conversation. Turns out he used to be a disc-jockey for one of the radio stations in Rochester where we live. He used to live in the neighborhood of some of our friends. SMALL WORLD AIN'T IT.
During mass this church has a custom which I had not seen/heard before at mass. At the Offering part of the Mass, the deacon gets up and asks the congregation if their are any special petitions that they would like to ask God to mind. The congregation members then shout out their requests and the Mass continues.
