Hi, we are down to the wire on printing our programs. We're using a detailed format to help my non-catholic friends and family follow along. My future MIL is very insistent that we include a statement in our program to ensure they know not to receive communion. She also does not believe in second vatican, still attends mass in latin, wears a veil at mass, etc.
While my family/friends will apprciate the order of mass in our program, they are all aware of not taking communion. Many I've talked to think that adding a statement may be offensive and they may feel further excluded. The priest doesn't address this at communion. Any ideas on what to do? Perhaps an indirect statement "Non-catholics may come forward for a blessing or remain seated during communion." or "We respectfully request communion in the Church be limited to Catholics".
