Full Question

Does having multiple priests consecrating the Eucharist mean anything or give additional special meaning to the Mass?

Answer

When two or more priests or bishops celebrate Mass together this is called concelebration, and it is an expression of unity. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal explains that concelebration “appropriately expresses the unity of the priesthood, of the Sacrifice, and also of the whole people of God” (GIRM 199).
