Communion Services in English and Spanish
The Office of the Diaconate, in consultation with the Office for Divine Worship and Cardinal Cupich, has prepared approved texts for weekday Communion Services in English and in Spanish. As these texts are the only approved versions for use in the Archdiocese, each deacon who presides at a weekday Communion Service should be using these.
