Guidelines for Receiving the Eucharist

When receiving Holy Communion, please remember to bow your head before the Blessed Sacrament as a gesture of reverence and respond “Amen” before receiving.  The host should be received on the tongue or in an open palm with one hand over the other.  It should always be received, never grabbed.  For those receiving the Precious Blood, consume a small amount after saying “Amen.”  Intinction, the dipping of the host into the chalice is not permitted.
