Bishop Jennifer recently announced that sharing the Blessed Wine at the Holy Eucharist can now include sipping from the chalice. Holy Family will be offering this form of Communion at all Sunday and Holy Week services. Worshippers can continue to receive only the Blessed Bread with no Wine, or to receive the Wine by intinction (dipping the bread in the chalice) rather than a sip, or to skip the Bread and Wine altogether and instead receive a personal blessing from the priest. Simply staying at one’s seat in prayer during Communion is always an option as well. Neither God’s love for us nor the personal experience of it is lessened by how or whether we receive the Holy Eucharist. All are welcome. Feel free to contact Fr. Bruce or any other members of the Holy Family Regathering Team if you have any questions. (Updated March 31, 2022)
