Bishop Thomas Olmsted has issued new norms for the distribution of Communion in the Diocese of Phoenix that entrust to pastors the decision to make available Communion under both kinds in their parishes.


Previously, the diocese planned to restrict the availability of the precious blood to a limited number of occasions.


Bishop Patrick McGrath of San Jose said Catholics in his diocese are encouraged to take Communion under both kinds at every Sunday and feast day Mass.
