On Restoring the Distribution of the Precious Blood at Mass

EucharistJesusBishop Gruss is granting permission to return the practice of offering the Distribution of the Precious Blood of the Risen Lord at Mass. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) states: “Holy Communion has a fuller form as a sign when it takes place under both kinds. For in this form the sign of the Eucharistic banquet is more clearly evident.” (#281).

Therefore, Ave Maria Parish will return to offering the Precious Blood at Commun- ion time for those who desire to receive on July 10th, 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time after the necessary instructions to our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and the appropriate liturgical catechesis for our community. Please remember that reception of the Precious Blood of the Lord from the Chalice remains an option. The act of receiving Holy Communion is an act of faith. The person makes this act of faith in the total presence of the Lord whether in receiving Holy Communion under one form or under both kinds. (#14-15 - Norms for the Distribution of Holy Communion Under Both Kinds)

MAlogoAve Maria Parish Mission Statement

Ave Maria Parish is a Catholic faith community who welcomes all people to our Christian family. We are disciples and sacramental followers of Jesus Christ. In our chosen vocations, we call upon the Blessed Mother’s intercession and recognize the power of the Holy Spirit within each of us to carry out God’s work.

We strive to grow together in holiness through prayer, reception of the sacraments, faith formation and evangelization. Through the grace of God, we extend ourselves to each other and our community to proclaim the love and teachings of Jesus Christ.
