Roman Catholic AnswerNo. First of all, there is no "Eucharist" in a Protestant church. The protestants themselves do not even believe this, and they no longer have valid apostolic succession or orders so they have no priests to confect the Eucharist. Second, one would be, by receiving their Holy Communion, expressing unity with an heretical sect which does not believe in the truth as received from Jesus Christ so one would be committing a mortal sin.

Roman Catholic AnswerIn these days of the priest shortage, a Communion Service, in which a layman conducts a brief prayer service and distributes Holy Communion (that was consecrated at an earlier Mass) has become a sad necessity in places.

Can a non-catholic receive the holy communion at mass?

No, a non-catholic may not receive the Holy Communion at Catholic mass. In some churches that have communion, that communion is more of a symbolic thing so you may be allowed to receive that communion at their service (check with the pastor). In the Catholic Church however the faithful believe the Eucharist literally be the body of Christ and anyone conscious of a grave sin must receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before coming to communion (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1385). (For explanation of grave sins see Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1846-1869.) Moreover, Catholic may, if they have the required dispositions, receive communion every day at mass (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1388). If you want to receive communion in the Catholic faith you must first attend catechism classes to get to the point where you can go to confession and then receive the first communion.

Is there Holy Communion on Good Friday?

It is an ancient tradition of the Christian Church not to celebrate the Eucharist or Mass Or Divine Liturgy on Good Friday. This tradition continues to be observed in virtually all Christian Churches, whether Roman Catholic, Eastern Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican or Protestant. But, virtually all Christian Churches have a prayer service on Good Friday, albeit a prayer service that does not include a complete Eucharist. Churches that practice Reservation of the Blessed Sacrament may distribute Holy Communion on Good Friday as part of the non - Eucharist Prayer Service. They use bread previously consecrated. Usually the previously - consecrated bread comes from the Holy Thursday Evening Eucharist commemorating the Last Supper. So it is quite possible to receive Holy Communion on Good Friday, but it is not possible to attend a Eucharist, Mass, or Divine Liturgy on Good Friday.

Can Catholic receive communion outside Catholic church example at lutheran church?

Ordinarily, a Catholic should only receive Holy Communion in a Roman Catholic Mass. Most other churches are not in communion with the Pope and disagree on certain doctrines, and so have removed themselves and established themselves as a separate church. Catholics believe that because of this, their communion is not the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ. To participate in their communion would mean that one would be participating in their service, which would be to deny the Catholic Faith's teachings on the Eucharist, etc. Therefore, a Catholic usually cannot receive communion in these churches. There are possibly some exceptions - see your local Catholic priest to learn about it.

If a protestant or other non-Catholic is asking what is Communion in regards to the Catholic faith, they might very well be asking what is the Eucharist in regards the Catholic faith. .Communion in the Catholic faith is the Eucharist insofar as it preserves the union with God by fostering that union by making a person more holy especially in practice of the supernatural virtue of charity..Communion is a word in the non-Catholic world which is used to refer to a service, or what Catholics would call the Most Holy Eucharist. The Most Holy Eucharist is the actual Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, of Our Blessed Lord under the appearances of Bread and Wine. The word also refers to the Mass which is the re-presentation of the Sacrifice of Our Blessed Lord on the cross two thousand years ago.
