“Low-gluten hosts” available

ST. COLUMBA offers “lowgluten hosts” made from wheat starch and water for those individuals with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. The gluten content of these breads is less than 0.01%. The hosts meet the requirements set forth by the Roman Catholic Church for communion in terms of ingredients and gluten content. Any individual in need of a lowgluten host may inform Msgr. Lawrence. He will have the pyx with low gluten hosts, and he will administer the lowgluten host to that person during Communion.
