Communion Distribution

After meetings with the Acolytes and Special ministers and the Liturgy committee, which noted sometimes the congestion around where the ministers distributed the cup sometimes deterred people from receiving the Blood of Christ, it was decided to trial a different route for reception of the Body and Blood of Christ. This new process involves people sitting in the far quadrants of the church pews (not the middle quadrants). They will be asked to process to the outer aisle (on the windows sides) and walk towards the sanctuary receiving the Body of Christ from the minister then proceeding to the middle aisles and if they so wish to receive the Blood of Christ from the minister positioned at that point and then return to their seats via that aisle. We have begun this trial and a visual diagram will be placed on the overhead TVs to remind us of this new process. We will evaluate it after a month to see if it facilitates easier distribution.
