Gluten Free Hosts

After some months research the Pastoral Council has procured a supply of Hosts which are completely gluten free. This enables coeliac parishioners of all ages to receive the Eucharist in the form of “Bread”. There is no wheat in these Hosts which are stored and will be served following strict procedures. Please Refer to Separate Notice.

If you know any Coeliacs please let them know.
