Drive-In Communion

Updated: Mar 31, 2020





Drive-In Communion at St. Paul’s?

Yes, it’s true. We can receive Sunday Holy Communion at St. Paul’s by driving in. However odd this may sound, don’t go away.

When and Where: On Sundays between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. at St. Paul’s.

How: Folks stay in their car and drive by a “station” set up along the circular driveway between the Parish Hall, old cemetery and rectory, one car at a time.


Is it safe? The arrangement keeps those receiving communion isolated from each other. Fr. Frank sanitizes between each car.


This past Sunday there were four cars and a total of six people, plus Fr. Frank and Chip Lausman, who directed traffic. All went well.


The bishop’s March 20th directive says our church may “explore responsible ways of offering the Holy Communion/Morning Prayer without in-person or face to face contact.” Praise be that Fr. Frank is finding creative, responsible and imaginative means to feed the sheep and soothe our spirits in this dark time.


Taco Bell claims in one of its slogans that it “think[s] outside the bun.” Taco Bell has nothing on St. Paul’s!


Edited to add:


On March 29th, Fr. Frank served 11 cars, with a total of 20 passengers.
