A priest who offers Mass jointly with one or more other priests. The liturgy provides for three distinct parts in a concelebrated Mass: those to be said by the principal celebrant, those to be said by all the celebrants together (e.g., the words of consecration), and those that may be said by one or another concelebrant.
