Well here’s what’s going down for me:

Program:  If you’re a nonCatholic and would like to participate in Communion, please come forward for a blessing.

However, I don’t know if I’ll have programs b/c there will only be 30 people and in that case, I’ll gently remind my family prior to the ceremony–most know the Eucharist is off limits to nonCatholics.

Also, my priest will reiterate what is written in the program, they’re usually really gentle and good at that stuff.  They can ask those who are not catholic to step foward for a blessing if they like before Communion.

I’m having a Catholic wedding as well and am not sure about this however I went to a Catholic wedding where the priest just very nicely explained that if you would like to receive communion, to go through the pews this way yadda yadda or remain kneeling…something like that. It got the message across.

We just avoided it by having a ceremony instead of a full-mass.  But then again neither me nor most of my family or friends are Catholic so we thought it would be quite awk to serve communion to only one side of the church.

This is what we are using…..

We welcome everyone to this celebration of the Eucharist as our brothers and sisters. Catholics are invited to come forward to receive Holy Communion. At NAME OF CHURCH, for those of other faiths we welcome you to come forward for a blessing, please just cross your arms across chest and the presider will give you a blessing.
