This leaflet from the National Board of Catholic Women seeks to answer the question When may Christians from other Churches take Holy Communion in a Catholic Church?
The leaflet clarifies what is meant by sharing Communion, outlining when Communion is able to be shared and provides advice about how to ask to receive Communion within the current guidance and provides specific information for those in interchurch families.
The National Board of Catholic Women have written this leaflet in consultation with the Association of Interchurch Families, the Department for Faith and Unity at the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales and the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity in Rome. Its guidance is based on the teaching of One Bread One Body, the Bishops Conference teaching document on the Eucharist in the life of the Church.Download document
