Catholic Community of St. Jude at 801 North Bridge Street, DeWitt, MI 48820 US - Low Gluten Communion
Every few months, someone who has been diagnosed with celiac sprue (a sensitivity to the protein gluten) approaches me with questions about their options for receiving communion, since regular communion hosts are made from wheat flour, which contains gluten.
I am glad to let these folks know that we have special ultra-low gluten hosts available for them for communion. These hosts, perfected after much research by the Benedictine Sisters of Clyde, Missouri, contain 0.01% gluten and are
approved for use by the U.S. bishops.
If you (or someone you love) has been diagnosed with celiac sprue and would like to receive communion using one of these ultra-low gluten hosts, please see me for additional information.
