Are you able to receive Communion

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 2.39.41 PMAre You Aware? It has been our experience at times that some people may feel they are not able to receive Communion due to divorce or other personal issues. Often times, there may be a misunderstanding regarding Church Teaching in these matters. You are encouraged to see Fr. Gill, S. Mary Ann, Deacons Jim, or John for clarity so that you do not miss the opportunity to celebrate the healing presence of Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and in turn come to the Table of the Lord.
