NEW PROTOCOL FOR RECEIVING HOLY COMMUNION ON THE TONGUE
As of 25 March 2021, we have received a New Protocol regarding the reception of Holy Communion. Bishop Rojas has reinstated the Reception of Holy Communion on the tongue. However, we ask that those of you wishing to receive Holy Communion on the tongue to remain standing in your pew until the end of the line of those receiving in the hand so the Ushers will recognize you and guide you from the back to the front to receive Communion on the tongue.
Administrator: Rev. Eliseus Uju

Never permit me to be separated from You. AMEN.
