AS WE ENTER THE COLD AND FLU SEASON our parish has made changes to the distribution of Holy Communion to help prevent the spread of illness. The distribution of Holy Communion will be limited to the host alone with only the priest having the chalice. This is a temporary liturgical modification that will be lifted once we are through the cold and flu season.
