Low Gluten Hosts Procedure

For those with gluten intolerance we provide low gluten hosts made by the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, MO. As stated on their website their "breads are made of wheat starch (wheat flour from which much of the gluten protein has been removed) plus water.  It’s gluten content is <.001%. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has approved them for use in all dioceses."  You can learn more about the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration at www.BenedictineSisters.org.

BEFORE MASS

1, Arrive early at Mass  and get the host out of the fridge in the Vesting Sacristy (room where the priests and deacons prepare for Mass).

2. Place your host in the pyx (small gold container) labeled “gluten free” on the tray on the gifts table in the narthex.


AT TIME OF COMMUNION 

1. During communion, you go to the line where the priest is distributing communion. (If the priest isn’t distributing communion you still go to the right line at the main aisle.) 

2. When you are ready to receive, notify the priest (or whomever is distributing communion) that you are receiving the low gluten host.  

Please DO NOT go forward at communion and request a Low Gluten Host unless you have placed one in the pyx on the gifts table before Mass.
