The eucaristic communion procession and the reception of Holy Communion…
This Pastoral Letter on The Eucharistic Procession and the Reception of Holy Communion has come together at the direction of Bishop Garcia. With the encouragement of the Presbyteral (Priest) Council the writing of the Pastoral was begun in 2017. It has been Bishop Garcia’s hope that all of us in each parish community celebrate the beauty of the Eucharist with one mind and heart, mindful that we belong to the local church in our Diocese of Monterey in California.
Bishop Garcia approved the final draft of the Pastoral Letter in February 2018.
It has taken some time to translate, publish and provide this letter to you.
