We have low gluten hosts
Available for those who may need it. [Please consult your doctor. The low gluten hosts we use are approved by the USCCB. The gluten content is <.001% or 10ppm.] On any given day, we try to keep at least 5 consecrated low gluten hosts in the tabernacle. If you are new to the parish or visiting, please notify either the priest or deacon before Mass begins to let us know that you require a low gluten host. As you approach for Holy Communion and reach the priest, let him know that you require the low gluten host. He will then give you communion from the pyx containing the consecrated low gluten hosts.
