This is the Lord’s Table, not just an Anglican table.
- The bread/wafer is received in the open palm. Gluten-free wafers are available – just ask the priest.
- The wine, if desired, may be taken from the common cup by drinking (placing your hand gently at the base of the chalice to guide it).
Please do not dip the wafer into the wine.
If you do not wish to drink from the cup, simply hold the base of the chalice when it is presented to you while the administrator says the words of offering.
- If you do not wish to receive the bread and wine, but would like a blessing, please indicate this preference by crossing your arms across your chest.
