Return of the Common Cup
On March 14, two years almost to the day after the suspension of public worship in the diocese, Bishop Dietsche wrote to the diocese to authorize, with immediate effect, the return to Communion in Both Kinds, and to “permit, and encourage, the restoration of the Common Cup in the worship of our churches.” At the same time, he recognized people’s varying levels of comfort during the continuing pandemic, writhing that he wanted to be clear that “no one is required to drink from the chalice. Nor is any parish required to do this until they are ready.”
