Communion in a different space

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Thank you for all of your help.  It is a great service to all of us.

I have seen the discussion about bringing Holy Communion to a group of people in a different space during Mass who have a video feed of the Mass. 

I was just going to point out that this was done for the canonization of St. Junipero Serra at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC.  Seminarians and religious were inside the basilica.  The Mass was celebrated on the side lawn.  At the appropriate time, deacons brought ciboria into the church to distribute to the seminarians and religious inside the church.

For what it is worth…


A: Thanks for this. It is my hope that the widening experience of live-streamed Masses will cause a re-evaluation of such practices.
