    I love this time of the year. Some of my favorite days lie ahead. However, this time of the year is also when flu and sickness seem to spread. To help prevent spreading illness we will be making some temporary changes. From the beginning of Advent until Easter we will just have communion under the one species (the host). In addition, I would also like to encourage us to avoid joining hands during the sign of peace and the Our Father. If you want to join hands with family or friends that is understandable, but I just want to make sure that we are being respectful of those who may not want to shake or join hands. So please be respectful.  
    I have been encouraged to implement these temporary practices by our Bishop and medical professionals. However, I know there may be some who disagree. If you would like to talk about this feel free to contact me. I would be happy to have some discussion about this matter. I do want to assure people that even though you may not receive the precious blood from the chalice it does not mean you are receiving “less Jesus”. We still receive Jesus in His complete fullness by partaking of the communion host - 100% body, blood, soul, and divinity is contained in the Eucharist. Thank you for your consideration and understanding.
