I've noticed that the past couple weeks that I've began to attend Mass at my normal parish that our priest, before self-communicating dips the host into the chalice.

I was wondering if this is licit since I've never seen it personally done as such before?

Thanks

Yes, it's licit. This is called "intinction." He may be a recovering alcoholic and wants to limit his alcohol consumption, or perhaps he's ill and doesn't want to transmit germs to anyone else receiving from that chalice.

I thought it was mandatory, I've never seen it NOT done.

I don't think he's talking about the piece that's broken off and dropped in the chalice. If he is, then it's a required part of the rite.
