Ebola Virus: Catholic Adopt New Method For Holy Communion

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, His Eminence, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, has asked Rev. Fathers to start a new procedure of giving the Holy Communion to check likely spread of the Ebola virus.

The Holy Communion will now be given on the palm as against placing it on the tongue of the recipient. Many Catholic churches have already adopted the procedure, and carried it out yesterday during communion.

The stoppage of hand shake by worshippers done during consecration of the Holy Communion as sign of peace, is said to have also been banned.
