Easter Sunday Communion Distribution

The Gift of Finest Wheat

As you have heard or read by now, there are no seats available for either of our Masses on Easter Sunday morning.  There are 60 seats available for the Great Easter Vigil on Saturday evening, but many people still equate Easter services with Easter Sunday. Moreover, I am very aware of the fact that it has been over a year since some parishioners have been able to “taste and see the goodness of the Lord.”  Therefore, early on Easter Sunday afternoon, some ministers and I will be offering the Body of Christ to any parishioners who would like to receive it.

Here are the details for that day:

  • Hopefully, you will join us via livestream for either the Easter Vigil or Easter Sunday liturgies.
  • Between 12:45pm and 1:30pm Easter Sunday afternoon, you’re invited to enter Church to receive Holy Communion.  (We will not be distributing the Eucharist to people while they wait in their cars as they do at some other parishes.)
  • As is our practice here, please wear a mask in church.
  • You’ll be invited by a hospitality minister to stand in a pew just as we do for Mass.  While you wait to receive the Body of Christ, pray the Our Father.
  • Again, as is our practice here, please receive the Eucharist in your hand.
  • After you receive the Eucharist, please follow the directions of the hospitality minister to exit the church.

Finally, if you feel comfortable receiving the Body of Christ in the way I have described it, please register your name and number of people receiving Holy Communion below. There are two reasons for doing this: One is for contract tracing if it is needed.  The other and more important reason is so we know how many additional hosts need to be consecrated at the Easter Sunday Masses.
