Receiving Holy Communion or a Blessing

All who are confirmed, for whom it is your usual practice and who are in good standing in other churches are invited to receive Holy Communion at this service. If you do not wish to receive communion but would like to receive a blessing, please come forward bringing your service booklet with you.

Fr Murray will receive both elements the bread and the wine after the consecration.

During the distribution of Holy Communion we would ask that you come to the Altar rail socially distanced and in single file.  Please remain standing while receiving Holy Communion or a blessing.

Holy Communion at this time will be given in one kind only. This means that you will be offered the bread/wafer but not the wine. This remains a valid and full reception of Holy Communion.

 Please note that Fr Murray will not speak to you at the Altar rail, rather he will simply place the Host (Bread) in your hand for you to consume. You are permitted to lower your face mask to consume the host, please then replace your mask while at the altar.


If you come for a blessing Fr Murray will silently pray a Blessing over you whilst making the sign of the cross.

After receiving Holy Communion or a Blessing. Please return to your seat by turning Right and exiting the chancel via the chapel area.
