  • Thanks for the report, Miss Amanda. It’s interesting to see how different places are coping and carrying on right now.

    I do have a question, particularly in light of the “Virtual Communion” thread in Ecclesiantics. I took a look at the bulletin and noted that at the offertory, it says “The people’s offerings of bread and wine, and money or other gifts, are brought to the Celebrant.” Later, after the Breaking of the Bread, the liturgy has “Communion of the People.” How were these handled? Or were they just remnants of the normal, pre-virus, bulletin that were essentially ignored?

    I think they were remnants of pre-virus bulletins. There was no presentation of gifts, and the celebrant was the only one who communed.
  • Thanks.
