Following the COVID-19 pandemic, all restrictions have now been lifted regarding public gatherings, including not having to wear a face covering in places of worship.
However, a word of caution. Please be aware of those who do wish to maintain some social distancing and who will continue to wear face coverings. Hand sanitizer will continue to be available in churches and should still be used.
Holy Communion is now administered using the practice of
simultaneous administration. This means that the consecrated bread will have
been dipped in the chalice by the eucharistic president and then administered
to each communicant individually.
This is done in the following manner:
- The person administering wears disposable gloves.
- Each wafer is taken from a special vessel, dipped individually and placed in the hand
of the communicant.
- Any remaining wine is safely consumed as the only person
to have been in physical contact with it is the eucharistic president.
Please feel free to come and join us. Also, if you know of anyone who may appreciate a phone call please let me know.
