15/11/09 – Things Communion Ministers Want You to Know #2

Drink from the chalice

Self-intinction, or dipping your host into the chalice is not the means by which communion is consumed from the chalice.  We eat the host and drink from the chalice.  Intinction is only permissible when it is performed by the minister (not the communicant), and is considered to be an alternative method used only when communion cannot be distributed the usual way.  In Wentworthville, intinction is not used for the reception of communion.
