Reception of Holy Communion

Reception of Holy Communion

Distribution of Holy Communion Protocols
Holy Communion will be distributed by individual sections of pews.  Please wait until a Communion distributor arrives at your section before proceeding. Maintain a distance of two pews between yourself and the nearest individual ahead of you in line who is not from your household. Distribution begins at the sections nearest the exits on both sides of the church, working its way to end in the center aisle. Some are confused as to how to receive, given the presence of face coverings. Please consume the host immediately upon reception.  It works best to remove your masks as you approach the front of the line. 
Holy Communion in the Hand- please extend your hands, one directly over the other, as the Sacred Host is deposited. If possible, keep your hands flat and wait until the priest/deacon deposits the host before reaching fo rit.  this will greatly minimoze potential contact. Also, do not hold your hand up too high in front of you, as it is more difficult to deposit a host.
Holy Communion on the Tongue- the Celebrant alone will distribute in this manner in the center aisle, after the other sections have received. All other clergy will be distributing in the hand, so as to reassure any who may be concerned. 
If any skin to skin contact is made whatsoever, sanitization will take place immediately before the next communicant comes forward.
Following your thanksgiving prayer after Communion, (or blessing), please make your way to the exits, so as to avoid congregating inside the Church after Mass.  We also stress the importance of social distancing upon exiting the Church.
