A Message from our Rector:
Communion Service at the Cathedral beginning Thursday, May 21, 2020 after the following Masses:
- Monday – Friday after the 12:05 pm Mass
- Saturday Evening after the 5:30 pm Vigil
- Sunday after the 9:30 am and 12:45 pm Masses
The Communion Service will be held in the front of the Cathedral by the Christ the Redeemer statue.
Please line up on the left side of the Cathedral by the rectory wearing your masks, and socially distanced. Follow markings on the ground. There will be staff available to provide directions. Remember to bring your own hand sanitizer. Note: the clergy will be wearing masks while distributing communion.
The first nine people will gather appropriately spaced in front of the Cathedral. The priest or deacon will begin the Communion Service which will last about 10 minutes. The service includes the Penitential Rite, a reading, the Our Father, Holy Communion and a final blessing.
How to Receive Holy Communion:
It is highly recommended to receive the Eucharist in your hand.
As you are ready to receive the host, take Communion, step to the side, pull down your mask and receive. Pull your mask up after receiving.
Once everyone in your group has received, the priest will give a final blessing.
Please return to your car after the final blessing, so that the next group of people can participate in the service.
Note: If it is raining, the priest or deacon will be in the Narthex and you will be standing outside. Please be aware that the Cathedral will be closed for quiet prayer and no seating will be available during the service.
