For the sake of caution, the bishop recommends that the pastor of each parish suspend temporarily the distribution of the Blood of Christ at the Eucharist in order to prevent the spread of disease during the time of a flu outbreak. Likewise if you are accustomed to receiving Communion on the tongue, you will prevent spreading your saliva to the hand of the Communion minister by receiving Communion in the hand during times of flu outbreaks or when you or someone in your household has been sick. At the Sign of Peace, you can offer a smile or a wave or a simple bow of the head to those around you. If you have come in direct contact with someone who has been sneezing or coughing, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with your hands until you can wash them. This is a good practice at any time since germs can spread when we touch our eyes, nose, or mouth. Respect should be given to individuals who refrain from sharing a handshake at the Sign of Peace. This is at the discretion of each individual person.
Ethics and Integrity. The diocese requires all volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults to have a background check and complete the basic Ethics and Integrity course and attend an EIM refresher course every three years. If you are not sure if you are currently in compliance, please call Joan Woods @ 512-913-5838. You can also go to austindiocese.org and click on "How to access your existing EIM account."
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED — We now have sponsors for altar flowers for all the weekends in 2014 at St. Charles. God bless you for your generosity.
