New Church Regulations: This is a reminder that the new Church regulations require that anyone who is not able to kneel during the Eucharistic Prayer is to remain standing. This would pertain to anyone sitting in the chairs along the sides of the Church or any seats that do not have kneelers. Also the proper way to receive the Holy Eucharist is to bow reverently and say Amen before receiving the consecrated Body and Blood.
