FYI… LOW GLUTEN family members:

To ensure your participation, please be aware that you may request to receive a low gluten (it’s very low) host during Eucharist.
The procedure at St. Louise de Marillac is:
1.  please inform the sacristan before the Mass that low gluten is needed. The sacristy is at the end of the short hall opposite the table at the main entrance to our Church.
2.  always go to the priests “line” to receive the Sacrament.
3.  please quietly say “low-gluten” to the priest so he is aware.
