ANNOUNCEMENT:  THE RECEPTION OF HOLY COMMUNION DURING PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS VIA DRIVE-UP/WALK-UP OPTION

Two Communion Stations will be offered for the distribution of Holy Communion while the church buildings remain closed. Both stations, drive-up and walk-up, are accessible from the North parking lot of Corpus Christi Church. Please enter the north parking lot from the Prairie Street or Thompkins Street entrances - the traffic circle/fire lane will be for exit only traffic. Communion ministers will be wearing a mask and gloves for your protection and their own protection. Masks are not required for those receiving in their car.

 

For those who do not wish to leave their cars because of age, physical aptitude, or concern pertaining to COVID-19, please remain in your cars to receive Holy Communion. Car traffic will enter into the NORTH entrance of the traffic circle/ fire lane at the direction of those directing traffic then proceed safely to the Communion Minister. After occupants of the vehicle have received Holy Communion, the driver may proceed safely toward the Prairie Street exit and enter Prairie Street traffic flow in their preferred direction at the driver's discretion.


IMPORTANT REMINDERS TO RECEIVING HOLY COMMUNION IN YOUR VEHICLE

  • It is highly advised that you watch the live stream of Mass prior to receiving Holy Communion
  • You should keep the one hour fast prior to receiving Holy Communion
  • Radio should be off to assist in creating a prayerful space to receive the Blessed Sacrament
  • Holy Communion should be received in the hand, using the proper method, by sticking both hands out the window of the vehicle.

  • Masks may be worn until the time of reception, but not required in your automobile.
  • The parking lot and cue for both Communion stations should remain a prayerful space before and after receiving Holy Communion. It is not a social space or place of conversation. Please be mindful of others around you who wish to receive Holy Communion in a prayer manner by being courteous and not interrupting their prayer.

 

For those able to park and walk, they may walk to receive Holy Communion near the base of the Northeast staircase of Corpus Christi Church, nearest the rectory. Pedestrian traffic will walk toward the church on the sidewalk leading to the rectory/office. Walk-up communicants will return to their vehicles in the parking lot via the North sidewalk and by crossing the traffic circle back to the backing lot. Please keep safe and comfortable distance (at least 6') between your party and other communicants. Communion ministers will be wearing mask and gloves for your protection and their own protection. Masks are recommended for the communicants until they arrive at the communion station.
