Catholics may receive Communion during Massoroutside Mass, but "a person who has already received the MostHolyEucharist can receive it a second time on the same dayonlywithin the eucharistic celebration in which thepersonparticipates", except as Viaticum (Code of Canon Law,canon917).
Secondly, can I receive Communion if I am not married in the Catholic Church? Church teaching holds that unlessdivorcedCatholics receive an annulment — or achurchdecree that their first marriage was invalid— theyare committing adultery and cannotreceiveCommunion.

Receive the host.
- If you wish to have the host handed to you, hold out yourhands,left on top of right. Do not take the host from the priest,butrather allow them to place it in your hand.
