Liturgical Note - Celebrant's Host

Christ Lutheran Church will institute a new practice beginning this coming Sunday: the use of a celebrant's host.

The celebrant's host is a larger communion wafer that is more easily visible to God's people when elevated. After the elevation it is broken and put onto the paten with the other hosts. The shape will be different, and so will the feel in your mouth should you receive a part of it. But whatever portion of the loaf you receive know, in the words of St. John, that "It is the Lord". (John 21:7)

Remember, too, that there is great theological significance to the elevation which you can review here.

If you have any questions about this, or any other liturgical practice, please feel free to speak with your pastor.
