  • The general dispensation from Sunday and holy day obligation will continue.

DISTRIBUTION OF HOLY COMMUNION

  • For the distribution of Holy Communion, a single file line is necessary to maintain social distancing.

  • Ushers/volunteers masked and gloved will help ensure six feet distancing which are marked in red on the floor in church.

  • One side will go at a time.

  • For the health and safety of all, holy communion is to be received in the hand to avoid contact with individual’s saliva. 

  • Anyone who wishes to receive on the tongue should come up last in line.

  • When approaching the Presider, the communicant is to pull their mask below chin and present one hand resting on the palm of the other. If communicant has on gloves, they must be removed before receiving
    communion.
    After responding “Amen” the communicant reverently places the Eucharist in his or her mouth and immediately replaces their mask. 

  • Hand sanitizer will be available near the communion station if need by Presiders.

  • Presiders will be masked. 

  • For those who are gluten intolerant, special arrangements are to be made with the pastor/deacon prior to Mass. 

  • If a Eucharistic Minister wants to take communion to a family member that lives in the same household, please call the parish office (440-428-5164) for instructions.
