242. COMMUNION UNDER BOTH KINDS

See the statement of the Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy, "Communion under Both Kinds," «Newsletter», July 1966.

In accord with the instruction of the Congregation for Divine Worship on Communion under both kinds June 29, 1970), the National Conference of Catholic Bishops in November, 1970, added the following cases:

15. other members of the faithful present on the special occasions enumerated in no. 242 of the «General Instruction»;

16. at funeral Masses and at Masses for a special family observance;

17. at Masses on days of special religious or civil significance for the people of the United States;

18. at Masses on Holy Thursday and at the Mass of the Easter Vigil, the norms of the instruction of June 29, 1970, being observed;

19. at weekday Masses.

At its meeting in November, 1978, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops further extended the occasions on which Holy Communion under both kinds might be given when it approved the motion that Holy Communion may be given under both kinds to the faithful at Masses on Sundays and holy days of obligation if, in the judgment of the ordinary, Communion may be given in an orderly and reverent manner.
