Dear Miss ______________,

Thank you for your e-mail. You should be aware that Bishop McCormack has distributed revised sanitary directives to all clergy regarding the distribution of the Holy Eucharist. Priests, deacons, and extraordinary ministers have been asked that, should one wish to receive on the tongue that they may do so. I hope this is helpful to you.
