Hi, guys —

I was born a Pentecostal back in my country. I moved here to the states a while back and I have been worshiping with the Catholic Church for about six months now.

My work schedule is tight but I make sure to go to Sunday Mass every Sunday. I never miss it. It breaks my heart that I remain in the pew during Holy Communion.

  • Can I receive Holy Communion?

I already see myself as a full-time Catholic as this is where my heart calls home.

Bob replied:


You should become a Catholic and enjoy the fullness of all the Sacraments, as well as fulfilling the desires of your heart. God has led you home to this faith community, so follow the call all the way.

You can see a priest about RCIA , and could be received into the Church formally at Easter.

  • Why not make it happen?

Then you will have no issues about missing the Holy Eucharist, which is not only the True Presence of our Lord: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, but the living sign of unity which He calls us to.

End the separation and make it real. I will pray for you and along with all my fellow Catholics rejoice at your becoming part of the family.
