Communion on the Tongue

The Diocese of Joliet has followed the lead of the Archdiocese of Chicago in allowing those who wish to receive communion on the tongue to do so if they follow certain guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.  Therefore, we will follow these guidelines:

Weekday Masses

During weekday Masses beginning Thursday morning, we ask all communicants wishing to receive on the tongue come forward after all those receiving in the hand in the center aisle.  When they approach the priest, they should remove their mask. The priest will sanitize his hands before and after each particular communicant receiving on the tongue.  Having received, the individual should step to the side on the tape marking on the floor and return their mask to their face.

Sunday Masses (including 5 pm on Saturday evening)

We will have two individual distributing communion one minister standing in the center at the normal location and will distribute communion to those wishing to receive in the hand.  Another minister will stand to the right side of the other minister, at least six feet away, and will distribute only to those receiving on the tongue.  The minister distributing on the tongue will sanitize his/her hands before and ter every communicant.  The communicant should remove their mask just prior to receiving the host and then return the mask as soon as they have received communion.  All communicants should remember that they should not walk behind or near other communicants but always keep 6 feet distance.  Please notice that communion on the tongue will not be offered in the PLC.

May Almighty God bless you and keep you.


In Christ,

Fr. Thomas Milota
