Extended Communion with the Reserved Sacrament is intended as a means of facilitating regular reception of Holy Communion. In this service the Reserved Sacrament (previously consecrated by a Priest) is distributed by suitably trained lay people with the approval of the Area and Diocesan Bishops. Extended Communion indicates that the lay person “extends” the Communion, celebrated within the Benefice by our Priests, across the whole Benefice.

The liturgy for Communion by Extension can be found here.   If you wish for further information, please find attached ‘Guidelines on Communion from the Reserved Sacrament’ and ‘Ad Clerum on Communion from the Reserved Sacrament’
