Norms for the Reception of Communion

(In the Diocese of Dallas, Church of the Incarnation)

Since many who attend Mass at the University Church of the Incarnation come from different areas and dioceses throughout the country it is important that there be a certain uniformity in the reception of the Eucharist.


The customary way of receiving Communion at the Church of the Incarnation according to the norms of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM #160) is standing. Processing up to receive communion is symbolic of our journey to the kingdom and our being fed with nourishment for the journey.  We stand to receive the consecrated bread and wine as a symbol, that through Baptism, we have risen to new life.  Kneeling or genuflecting before receiving is discouraged, although you are free to do so if you wish.  Just keep in mind that it breaks the flow of the procession and attracts attention to the individual and may cause the Precious Blood to be spilled.  Quite often the person behind the one who chooses to kneel or genuflect is unaware that this is happening and is caught off guard.  The communicant is to bow his or her head before receiving the Sacrament as a gesture of reverence.  When all receive in the same manner it is as well a sign of Christian unity.

When receiving the consecrated host one is free to receive either in the hands or on the tongue.  If it is received in the hands the left hand should be placed over the right hand.  The fingers of the right hand take the host from the left and place it in the mouth.  If one chooses to receive the host on the tongue one should be sure that the tongue is extended so that the minister does not touch the lips or the saliva of the individual.  The minister is not to place the consecrated host in a person’s mouth but on his/her extended tongue.


When partaking of the precious blood, take the goblet from the minister, sip some of the precious blood, and give the goblet back to the minister.
