Non-Catholic Communion

Q. If I have been baptized in the Catholic Church, is it permissible for me to participate in the holy Communion at a Christian church?

L.B., Lansing, Mich.

A. Here’s a reply from TCA columnist Father Ray Ryland, Ph.D., J.D:

The answer is no. The reason is this. The Church teaches that to partake of Communion in any Christian tradition is publicly to declare one is in full agreement with what that tradition teaches or holds. Therefore, if you, a Catholic, were to share in the Communion of a non-Catholic tradition, your action would bespeak a falsehood.
