it is an event where the priest blesses the holy Eucharist and gives it to those who attend the service!
Communion is a sacrament in which a believer receives the body and blood of Christ.
Because its part of the catholic religion.
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.
There technically isn't really a "Communion service" in the Catholic Church. Normally, Holy Communion is received during Mass, although there is a specific formula for giving Holy Communion outside of Mass, this is not really referred to as a "service."
That is a redundancy. If you are a Catholic you are in communion with Rome. If you are not in communion with Rome, you are not a Catholic.

If you are referring to non Catholics receiving communion in a Catholic Church, the answer is no. Communion means an acceptance and belief in a religion and to receive Communion you do not accept would be hypocritical as well as blasphemous.
First Communion is not a religion. It is a sacrament practiced in quite a few Christian denominations (eg. The Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church, the Anglican Church).
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. When you accept the host you are basically stating that you are in 'communion' with the Catholic Church and a believer of all the Church teaches. To receive the host if you are not truly a baptized, believing Catholic you are a hypocrite and desecrating the Body of Christ.
That is the sacrament. Wine and the host. The host is made from unleavened bread.Roman Catholic AnswerIn the Catholic religion, the only "service of Communion" might be what the liturgical rites call "Holy Communion outside of Mass". There are seven Sacraments: Baptism, the Most Holy Eucharist, Penance, Confirmation, Matrimony, Holy Orders, Anointing of the Sick. If you are talking about Holy Communion outside of Mass then I would assume that the Sacrament you are asking about is the Most Holy Eucharist.
An Episcoplain cannot be confirmed in the Catholic church without entering into full communion, which means communion in the Cathoolci church and change of religion to Catholic throughthe RCIA program. So I do not understand how this could be. At any rate, an Episcopalian or any other denomination cannot receive communion in the Catholic church at this time
Neither one is first; the first is Baptism. But usually communion comes before confirmation.
No. It's not Roman Catholic, it's just Catholic, and it's not a service, it's called the Mass, or more properly, the Eucharist, and it is Holy Communion not communion. All that being said, yes, if the Anglican converts to Catholicism and is received into the Church, otherwise, no.
Alyssa Milano is Roman Catholic, was Baptized, Communion, and Comfirmation
No, communion is one of the three main parts of the Mass - Offertory, Consecration and Communion. If any of these is missing from the service, a Mass has not taken place.
The Catholic religion has seven different sacraments. They consist of: Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Confession, Marriage, Holy Orders, and the 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.
Yes. Further, you can not have any outstanding unconfessed mortal sins.
Ecumenical Catholic Communion was created in 2003.
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.
No, a Catholic should not receive communion in anything but a Catholic Church.
Because one of the reasons for receiving Holy Communion in the Catholic Church is to publicly show your communion with the Catholic Church. Non-Catholics are not in communion with the Catholic Church and therefore cannot receive Holy Communion.
No, it is not in communion with the Catholic Church.
