Texas Bishop Includes "Celiac" in Special "Swine Flue Directive"

In a special "Directive" released to the press yesterday evening, regarding the "seriousness of the Swine Flu", Bishop Edmond Carmody, of the Diocese of Corpus Christi included "people with celiac or special needs" in his seven (7)-item list of "directives to Priests regarding distribution of Communion in wake of N1H1 virus situation".

In learning about Celiac Disease and Gluten-Free living one will find there are all sorts of ways to encounter Gluten-Contamination -- yes -- even in church. While the flu is an emergent issue, The Holy Communion, gluten-contamination issue is ongoing and could be informative for anyone who is building their Celiac / Gluten IQ.
For more information on this go to or go to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops site. One can also go to google and type in the key words: gluten and holy communion and flu.
Have a nice day.
