Catholics in SPAAAAAAACE Open Thread

Catholics in SPAAAAAAACE Open Thread March 11, 2015

A reader asks:

Mark, supposing the Vatican has plans to colonize Alpha Centauri—which it most assuredly does—what all would need to go into the mission prep? How would the relationship between the Pope and bishops be handled in the absence of FTL communications?

I’m looking for an approach informed by canon law.

Of course, I totally know the answer to this.  Like, totally.  But since it’s so super-easy and my knowledge of canon law is so sophisticated, I’ve decided not to answer it and instead leave it for you, my readers, to discuss and answer. Knock yourselves out.
