From the weekend of Saturday, 30 November / Sunday, 1 December 2019 (the beginning of Advent) parishioners at St Pats will have the option of receiving the Precious Blood as well as the Body, in the form of the host, at Holy Communion.

Receiving the Precious Blood is not a requirement, but receiving the blood of Christ is a fuller sign of the the mystery we celebrate. Christ whole and entire, is received, even under one kind, but the invitation will be there for those who wish to receive the Precious Blood.

A more detailed explanation of Receiving of the Precious Blood is available below and also at the back of the Church.
