Communion may be received in the hand or on the tongue, a decision that is to be made by the individual receiving Communion, not by the minister distributing it.
If you wish to receive in the hand, hold out your hands, left on top of right. Do not take the host from the priest or minister, but rather allow them to place it in your hand. Remember to bow your head before the Sacrament as a gesture of reverence and reply “Amen” when receiving the Body and the Blood of the Lord. Due to the current pandemic, please keep your mask on as you approach to receive, Once the Host is in your hand, step to one side, remove the mask, consume It immediately, put your mask back on and move on reverently.
If you wish to receive on the tongue, approach the priest who lifts the Host and shows it to the communicant and says “The Body of Christ.” Reply “Amen,” open your mouth and extend your tongue. Please, keep your mask on and lower it when you are in front of the priest, putting it back on as soon as you have received.
Remember, there is nothing intrinsically more reverent about reception on the tongue or less reverent about receiving in the hand. Reverence or irreverence are generally determined by other factors, such as the spiritual attitude of the recipient, the demeanor of the one giving communion, the adequacy of Eucharistic understanding, and the manner in which the Eucharistic elements are treated both within and outside Mass.
