COVID-19 and Communion

A friend gave me books by Joseph Prince, describing how we can give ourselves Holy Communion every day if we choose during this COVID-19 time. I am skeptical about this. Is this approved by WELS? Is it vital that we continue even in different times to administer the body and blood of Christ to ourselves? I had never heard of this. Thank you.

Thankfully, restrictions on gathering for corporate worship, which includes receiving the Lord’s Supper, are easing.

When there were tighter restrictions two months ago, a Together newsletter contained information about the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. This link will take you to that newsletter. Look for the section titled “Communion.”
