PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF ILLNESS: Bishop Kihneman has highly recommended that the precious blood not be distributed during this virus season. This is to prevent the spread of any viruses. We are reminded that Jesus is equally present in both the body and blood and that we receive Jesus completely and fully by just receiving the host. ** It is also encouraged to receive the Holy Communion in your hand, not on your tongue at this time.
** Exchanging the Sign of the Peace by means of physical contact should be suspended. It may be verbal or with a bow to those nearby.
