Receiving Holy Communion

10-09-2016Pastor's LetterRev. Daniel J. Sullivan, S.J.

I would like to take the opportunity to remind the congregation as to how we are to receive Holy Communion. The directives I offer are based on the guidelines contained in the General Instruction on the Roman Missal (GIRM). Though you may see people doing things differently, or practices that are different in other parishes, these directives are how we are to receive Holy Communion in this Diocese.
