Is there a priest at a Holy Communion service?

Roman Catholic AnswerThe only times that a Catholic Church would have a Communion service would be if a priest were not available. In my diocese the rules are that a parish may have a Communion service on one Sunday out of the year if it is impossible to get a priest. The Vatican forbids Communion services during the week, and on a regular basis. There had to have been a priest there before the Communion service to consecrate the Sacred Hosts.

They do not truly verify whether or not the person receiving Holy Communion is Catholic. However, if you are not a Catholic you should not receive communion at Mass.

There are seven Sacraments: Baptism, the Most Holy Eucharist, Penance, Confirmation, Matrimony, Holy Orders, Anointing of the Sick.

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. One would receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist in Holy Communion, but the service itself, and everything else about it is most definitely NOT a sacrament.

What is the difference between a Catholic Mass vs a Catholic Communion service?

A Catholic Mass is presided over by a priest and during the Mass the wine and bread are consecrated and become the Body and Blood of Christ, under the forms of bread and wine. They are then distributed to the congregation at communion. A communion service in the Catholic Church usually takes place in areas that are experiencing a shortage of priests. A deacon or lay Eucharistic Minister holds the service during which the regular Sunday readings are read and communion, previously consecrated by a priest, is distributed. It takes the place of the Sunday obligation to attend Mass.
