Holy Communion for Parishioners with Low Gluten Hosts
Low-gluten communion hosts are available at all weekend liturgies. The hosts made by the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, MO, contain 0.01% wheat gluten, are accepted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (www.usccb.org/liturgy/celiasprue.shtml), and are recommended by the journal Gluten-Free Living as “perfectly safe” for sufferers of Celiac Sprue disease (Vol. 9, no. 1). The Archdiocese of Dubuque has approved these low-gluten altar breads for use in the Archdiocese. Therefore we have developed the a procedure to provide as much protection as possible for those with Celiac disease, please click the link below.
